Malawi: Investing in Lives

31 October 2012


The Globaleye School Programme is making a huge impact on this community in Malawi, and this September will bring the start of the project of reshaping the Mtemaumo School in the country.

Globaleye's MD Scott Balsdon and I recently visited Malawi to see how the 25% of the management fee from the Alquity Africa Fund is spent on sustainable projects.

Alquity Investment Management, in partnership with UK registered charity The One Foundation, helps people in developing countries who struggle to earn a living and who do not have access to credit and savings services from large banks and financial institutions.

Alquity donates a minimum of 25% of their net fund management fees from the Alquity Africa Fund to The One Foundation, which directly supports microfinance programmes to create jobs and lift people out of poverty.

During our stay we visited several people whose lives have been transformed by microfinancing loans, as well as visiting various schools who are benefiting from feeding programmes.
