Some NGOs Not Sustainable Beyond Donor Funding

Many of Malawi’s 500 registered NGOs do not work closely with local communities and projects collapse when they leave

Malawi has almost 500 non-governmental organisations - most of which are funded by international donors - but many of these organisations do not work closely with local communities, so when they leave, projects collapse.
 
After working in the Mulanje district for 15 years, World Vision stopped facilitating a project that provided vulnerable children with school materials and basic healthcare, and the local community with low-cost maize.
 
The people entrusted with maintaining the project failed to pay the rent and the landlord evicted them and now only an empty building signifies the project ever existed.
