N4BW aspires to be an instrument of progress and peace in a divided world. Our inspiration comes from the Gospel of Jesus and his work of love, compassion and justice – a mission which we ourselves must be part of today. Our outlook is inclusive and tolerant and we intend to work with anyone – of faith or no faith- open to sharing our ideals. Recognising the significant achievements of missionaries over many decades N4BW will work respectfully alongside colleagues from diocesan and religious missions – and other local grass-roots organisations.
N4BW shares the stated main aim of the Malawian Government and the Malawi Conference of Catholic Bishops : to eradicate extreme hunger in Malawi(Millennium Development Goal 1, target 1C)
Reaching the most marginalised, poorest families and providing sustainable, long term, routes out of that de-humanising & avoidable poverty. N4BW will do this through: community health education, distribution of life enhancing items, improvement of primary school standards, action on primary school attendance, after-school clubs and provision of secondary school teacher to improve standards, micro-business schemes, micro environmental/agro schemes - and other projects which the trustees agree meet the objective.
