We have found a likeminded partner in WHH who is as intent as us on seeing the most marginalized in communities attain wellbeing. This partnership is the beginning of even greater opportunities for vulnerable young people in Malawi” Sarah Lindeire, Co-Founder / Executive Director, Tingathe.

Our vision as WHH is a world in which all people can exercise their right to a self-determined life in dignity and justice, free of hunger and poverty. Supporting vulnerable young Malawians to develop skills that support themselves and their community is crucial for us and with Tingathe we found a partner whose passion and determination to work for and with young people is remarkable.” Jane Michel, WHH Program Coordinator
