Eagles’ vision is to see communities that struggle with poverty become self-reliant, prosperous and healthy; helping communities to access clean water and adapt to challenges brought by climate change to tackle food insecurity.
They do this by mobilising local churches, helping them to work with their communities to identify local needs and find the best ways to meet them. This is particularly important in areas where drought and floods are a recurring threat. Eagles is helping people to find ways of mitigating the destructive effects of disasters.
Food security is a big issue across Malawi, so Eagles are working with local communities to come up with creative ways to grow food; drought-resistant crops, small scale irrigation farming and other techniques are taught to help communities get enough to eat without relying on handouts.
With your support, Tearfund’s partner Eagles can empower Malawians to lift themselves out of poverty. Families will be able to feed themselves, restore their dignity and start a healthier life for the future.
