Our Vision


To be an instrument of progress and peace in a divided world.


To be a growing, innovative organisation, developing to help alleviate the extreme poverty in the communities we serve.


To be inclusive and to work with people of all faiths, or none, who are open to sharing our values.

Who we are

Network for a Better World was founded in 2012 by a group of twelve returned volunteers who decided from their experience of working in Africa that N4BW would offer the hand of friendship and a promise of partnership to some of the most marginalised people in our world today.

We are currently based in the UK, and work overseas in Malawi to help fight poverty.

Where we work

Sitima, near Zomba in Malawi

We identified this rural area of Southern Malawi. There was only limited input by larger agencies and governmental funders and the mainly subsistence faarmers were struggling to make a living after two seasons of drought.

At this sort of grass roots level, our modest investment of time, energy and money could have a better chance of truly helping those that need it.
