Strengthening Fumbe CBO Through Empowerment

Year: 2020
Country: Malawi
Project Status: Funded
Impact Sector: Economic Opportunity
Project Investment: $3,902.05

Project Launch: 1-6-20

The Fumbe Community Organization will renovate a community hall which is hired out for meetings and other activities. The structure will be equiped with running water, electricity, and a brick fence. This will allow the community organization to increase the rental fee for the space to generate more revenue. The funds generated through hiring of the hall will be used to improve the health and nutrition of individuals who are living with HIV/AIDS and the literacy of vulnerable populations, especially orphans.

Project Update: 4-28-20

Launched in January 2020, the Fumbe Community Organization has purchased additional land which will be used to increase space for community activities. The construction of the fence around the perimeter is underway and will be completed by end of May 2020. The community center has new windows and the electricity wiring is completed. They now await connection from Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi. Once the center is open, they will begin generating income to support vulnerable populations in the community.
