Community Center for Tembwe Village in Malawi
Organized by: Aja Nikiya
In the remote rural villages of Malawi, families have limited access to medicine and healthcare. Malaria is rampant and children are dying from the disease each passing day. According to UNICEF, Malaria kills one child every 30 seconds and about 3000 children every day. Over one million people die from malaria each year, mostly children under five years of age, with 90% of malaria cases occurring in Sub-Saharan Africa. But, it doesn't have to be this way. We can do something about this. We can make a difference. With your help, we will build a clinic in the village of Tembwe in Salima, Malawi. The clinic will serve eight villages and over 20,000 people. It will serve as a general out-patients clinic and dispensary for commonly prescribed medicines. The clinic will address common illnesses such as HIV/AIDS and issues relating to malnutrition.
Just One Humanity is a ground-up movement that focuses on specific needs of villages to improve quality of life. We focus on the simple fact that we are all more the same than different when it comes to basic needs and quality of life. We recognize that global inequities and basic needs such as clean water, healthcare, etc are not being met for many emergent nations.We promote needs-based assistance and pro-poor conservation at the village level in their commitment to self-sufficiency. Just One Humanity fosters a new paradigm of charity whereby developing nations serve as responsible citizens of this planet to engage in grass-roots involvement and become stewards of the environment.
Our mission is to to end extreme poverty in remote rural areas through sustainable solutions that preserve biodiversity and inspire global citizenship. We envision a world where basic needs are met for all people, serving as a foundation for self-sustainability and environmental stewardship.
We are currently working on building a community center in Salima, Malawi. The center will feature an education area for trainings on conservation, farming and literacy as well as an orphanage and clinic.
Help Make This A Reality
We have purchased a 3 acres piece of land in Salima, Malawi, and are ready to start building but we need your help! We need a total of $35,000 to construct the building, supply food and clothing to the orphans and fill the clinic with three months worth of medical supplies.
Breakdown of Costs:
$71,000 - building materials and labor
$7,000 - medicine and supplies for clinic
$1,500 - food, clothing and school supplies for orphans
$2,650 - furniture, computer, front office supplies
With this community center, we will be serving over 20,000 villagers in the surrounding areas. We have picked an optimal location that has a dirt road right into town. Through the education center, we will be able to offer trainings on farming techniques, animal husbandry, adult literacy and conservation. Through these programs we can lower deforestation rates, improve literacy, minimize livestock disease and increase food availability. The clinic will treat the most common illnesses in Malawi, including Malaria, HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and decrease the rate of infant and maternal mortality. The orphanage will impact more than 2,500 children that have lost their mother and father. We will offer daily meals, clothing, educational materials and school supplies.
Other Ways You Can Help
If you can't help monetarily, that's ok. Sometimes, we think we have to donate a certain amount, but that is not the case, Just one dollar can make all the difference when it comes to this center. And if you can get everyone in your office or class to donate a dollar, imagine the possibilities! If you cannot donate at all, please share this on social media, tell a friend or relative, you can make a difference and have a huge influence on those in your circle.
We thank you for your consideration and support. Remember, just one connection can change a life.
