No-one should have the heart-breaking choice of which child to educate and which one will miss out on their dreams. 

No hardworking young person should be forced to give up on education, locking them into poverty.

Like other farmers in Malawi, Jen struggles to get a fair price for her goods and has been battling climate change, with rising temperatures and regular floods making it tough to grow crops.

But one plant is hardier than the others: the pigeon pea is a small but mighty seed which is drought resistant, soil-revitalising and high-protein.

Christian Aid works with local partners in some of the world's poorest communities, supporting people regardless of their religion to live a full life, free from poverty.

Christian Aid’s two partners in Malawi are the Nandolo Farmers’ Association (NFA) and Alliance Development African Foundation (ADAF). NFA helps farmers market their produce, form co-operatives and supports them to increase their pigeon pea harvests. ADAF helps farmers who cannot obtain traditional bank loans with access to loans, and brings people together in village savings and loan associations.

Each year our parish gets involved in their big fundraising effort, Christian Aid Week.

We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods.

Together, we can help people secure a better future for their communities, giving them the chance to fulfil their potential.

Please give whatever you can, helping make dreams come true around the world.
