Review for Go! Malawi, Hebron, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I think our organization is unique in how we operate. We have developed a collaborative program with not only our partner committee in M'Pamila, but also with other community committees to ensure our programs are being run properly and that they are effective. This system has allowed a greater amount of people from the community to be involved in program development, and program assessment. While we do have direct oversight from our Organization for all of our programs, it is very important to us to have our programs being run and evaluated by the community members who are most impacted by the programs. The only way in which this system works is if there is a strong communication line between all the committees, and with our organization. We feel lucky that this type of communication exists.

How did you learn about this organization?

I helped found this organization in 2006.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Right now it is on assisting the local HIV Outreach Committee, assisting in education needs in the community (including providing tuition scholarships to secondary school students), making preparations for a micro finance farming project to begin in September, and conservation projects related to clean water and the Ntchisi Forest Reserve.

What is its top priority in the long run?

We hope to expand our outreach programs to specificly target orphans and vulnerable children, as well as provide a water source to 7 neighboring villages. We also have plans to work with the Ntchisi Forest Commission on developing more expansive programs to reduce the illegal logging being done in the rain forest.
