Focus AreasAll Sectors
We encourage applications from charitable organisations, registered either in the UK or Malawi, working at community level and particularly from those with connections to FOMA members or people known to them.

We favour community-based projects aimed at sustainable development and those that promote a degree of self-help within the community. We help with the relief of poverty through projects aimed at the improvement in areas such as, but not limited to, health, education and agriculture and we hope that projects will act as pilots for wider replication.

We will not fund under any circumstances individual education sponsorship, salaries, allowances and travel expenses, day-to-day consumable materials, projects that are for the benefit of a single individual or small group of people, any project that harms the environment , or any project that has political associations.
