WHO WE ARE

Our goal is to assist the African people to develop sustainably since the advent of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The African Trust Organization have focused on relief operations in the areas heavily affected bythe pandemic.

KNOW MORE ABOUT us and what we do

The African Trust is a network of grassroots NGOs dedicated to sustainable, high-impact development projects in sub-Saharan African states. Partnering with local stakeholders, we deliver innovative solutions that create jobs, protect the vulnerable, and save lives.

PROFITABLE HOBBIES. Desire Nyalugwe and Suwedi Mussa, project beneficiaries, both found purpose and source of income by participating in WeBuyMasks Malawi Project. Aside from spreading the message of prevention of the Corona Virus, their livelihoods have greatly improved.

Malawi is where electricity is an uncommon luxury but to Desire, her fruit of labor literally brought light and hope to her life as their home has now electricity.

HOBBY FOR A CAUSE. Aside from being a law student herself, Maureen Makuwira leads the mask production for WeBuyMasksMalawi Project which provides opportunities to the underprivileged that makes her passion and love for sewing more meaningful while keeping the community safe from COVID-19.

In this short video, you will witness how the young people of Malawian community make a living by doing their craft and by supporting WeBuyMasks Malawi Project at the same time which aims to mentor the youth with various vocational skills to help them become independent individuals.

DONATE FOR A CAUSE


COVID19 is spreading rapidly.  A huge number of Malawians
already have abnormal lung function.  Time is MASSIVELY against us.
We need made-in-Malawi masks for all Malawians NOW.
