Half of the population of Malawi live below the poverty line. And with 10% of the country’s inhabitants HIV-positive, economic difficulties make tackling AIDS even more of a challenge. The ALFI Foundation has supported the New York-based Face-to-Face Project, which does vital work to raise awareness of health issues and reduce social stigma in Malawi, as well as fostering comprehensive organic farming methods to protect the environment and supporting community service projects to foster youth development.
