Y-Malawi? To change our world…to change your world.
Some refer to Y-Malawi as a missions organization, and it’s true that we care about missions. Yet, we are non-traditional. We do not send missionaries. We partner with proven, local, ministries already working on the front lines. We do this for three specific reasons.
1) These local ministries understand the culture, needs and environment better than we can. They know the people, what works and what will not. Time and money are not wasted trying to make outside ideas work.
2) Working with local partners provides the opportunity to effectively impact a broad base of development areas. Through our local partners specialization is applied to schools, children, youth, village leadership, healthcare, micro-finance, development, village leadership, and the local church.
3) Operating with a synergistic approach, our local partners can accomplish results with incredible cost effectiveness. As duplication is reduced, and communications are improved, productivity and waste naturally fade away. The “do it all” approach is replace with “do what I do best.”
