The Raven Trust provides practical, direct support to needy communities in Malawi, East Africa.
All work done by The Raven Trust happens in response to requests from our Malawian friends and colleagues – and after careful consideration of the issues involved. As a rule, the emphasis is on equipping and training, however, where there are pressing survival and health needs, the Trust will do all it can to contribute directly to these.

Here are just a few of the things that individuals and groups are doing in the UK: giving spare clothes and blankets, refurbishing bicycles, collecting second-hand spectacles, accessing unwanted medical equipment, refurbishing tools, building boats, knitting, doing engineering research and design, doing architectural design, accessing engineering components, giving computers, praying, giving technical advice, making movies, donating technical and theological books, writing articles, measuring second-hand spectacles, raising money, giving money, packaging goods and recording them and their contents, stuffing containers.
