I had the privilege to work with the organisation ‘Extending Hope’, who works to promote sustainable development and bring new hope to those in hopeless situations. I was tasked with capturing images of the programs run by Extending Hope. A new health clinic in one village, which provides healthcare and advice to the region, working with the understanding that ‘Prevention is Better Than Cure’. I watched through my camera as farmers were shown sustainable agricultural methods, learning techniques that will help to minimise the effect of droughts that all to often cripple a farming industry that accounts for over 75% of Malawian food consumption and 90% of the country's exports. I met with pastors who are working to address a strong lack of discipleship and a disconnect between church on Sunday and the rest of the week in a country predominantly professing christianity.
These images will help tell the stories of Extending Hope, will be able to bring greater awareness to both the needs and the work being done, help to raise funds for future projects and gain the prayers and support of people like you, all over the world.
Extending Hope Organization is a non-governmental and interdenominational development organization. Our focus is Africa while we are currently working in Malawi.
Extending Hope is working with local and international experts in the area of education, health care (including water & sanitation), agriculture and economics (including alternative energy). Extending Hope promotes sustainable development and thus brings new hope to those in hopeless situations.
The organization was founded in 2011 and has since then trained thousands of people through different seminars.
