Fisherman’s Rest Community projects is a Charity in Malawi working and living alongside communities. Supporting families through friendship, education, infrastructure and providing opportunities for people to make positive change. Projects include building libraries, classrooms and secondary schools; girls support and education; Re-forestation, School breakfasts and water pump repairs. In Malawi a football pitch worth of trees are chopped down every ten minutes, as a society who rely on wood for fuel, Malawi is facing a fast approaching crisis. The tree project works at household level, providing education on conservation and how to grow and keep sustainable and diverse woodlots. The project then supports families through trees and guidance in creating their personal woodlots and through the building of a fuel efficient stove. The project goal is to protect and restore the environment and enable people to provide their families basic needs as well as additional income for their households with a sustainable woodlot.
