The William Stewart Hope for the Hopeless Foundation, based in Chitipa, Northern Malawi, where the Co-founder Levison Mlambya lives, aims to help those who are feeling hopeless about their lives, whether they are one of the many Malawian orphans or the elderly who feel alone and that nobody cares, or at any stage of life in between.
The gift of a Bible, a tablet of soap, a packet of salt, a pencil or a notepad are very simple things but can make the world of difference to how someone feels. They know someone cares about them.
For a grandmother, living in very poor conditions and trying to raise orphaned children, a bar of soap with which to wash their clothes is a present from heaven.
For a child who has no pencil or notebook and has to come out of school to brave the itchy Buffalo bean bushes to try to catch mice to sell, so that he can buy a pencil and get back into school, to receive a gift of stationery is the answer to his prayers.
Levison is a man with a vision, not just for his own area, but for all the hopeless in his country.
So many people in Malawi and the UK, too numerous to mention, are assisting the Foundation in different ways to achieve its mission.
This is our Core Team:
Levison Mlambya : Co-founder, Malawi
William Stewart : Co-founder, UK
Mary Young : Administrator
Sarah Black : Fundraising Team Coordinator
