Our Country Programme

Save the Children has been working directly or through partners in 25 of 28 districts in Malawi. Its commitment for children in Malawi is as it is anywhere else in the world. Save the Children has a commitment to working with government and other stakeholders to ensure that the life chances, livelihoods and opportunities for children in Malawi are enhanced. In addition to delivering programmes, we have also been advocating for children and building our capacity in responding to emergencies.
