John Midgley's Challenge
Touchstone is building 24 houses for vulnerable and orphan children in Chimombo, Malawi and providing associated health and legal training.
Malawi is the 6th poorest country in the world and the children in this rural area need our help. To mark his retirement from Touchstone, John has committed to raising £12,500 to build a new nursery for the children in the villages overseen by Group Village Headman Chimombo, to provide training for care givers and seed capital for income generation to make the nursery sustainable.
With your help we can provide a nursery for 450 children, giving them an improved education and an increased opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty.
