Project #318 | Empowering Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Malawi

Our partnership with Zoe Empowers

Many believe the greatest humanitarian crisis of our age is the 200 million orphans living and dying in extreme poverty globally. Malawi is one of the world’s most economically challenged countries with half the population living below the poverty line, 25% living in extreme poverty, and 37% of children under age five experiencing growth stunting due to malnutrition.  Orphaned children are especially vulnerable to extreme poverty, food insecurity and exploitation.

One Day’s Wages is partnering with Zoe Empowers to support orphaned and vulnerable Malawian youth who are heads of household and financially responsible for their younger siblings.  During this third year of our partnership, the youth (ages 12-20) will continue to participate in empowerment groups that offer access to savings and loans, and will secure a steady source of income through a small business or income-generating activity.  Children will graduate from the program with diverse streams of revenue to support their families, financial independence, and lasting bonds with a supportive group of peers. 

Project Goals




Thank you for making this possible!

Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.

If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our global hunger fund.
