Who are we?

we try to address social economic challenges which people in rural areas are facing

our success means better lives for people

Malawi is a landlocked small country situated in the East Central Africa bordering Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique. With a population of more than 18 million, 85 percent of the people are rural based and live on less than 2 dollars a day. 73 percent of the people can not read and write. 40 percent of the households are women. 11 percent of our children particularly girls are orphans with most being child or elderly headed households. Most of the people live in dire poverty, fail to access to education and live in dilapidated houses.

our mission

The mission of the CDI Trust is to eradicate poverty by building empowered, independent, secure, safe, self-reliant and resilient rural communities across Malawi.


We do this by achieving a radical transformation in housing that serves as a catalyst for other critical investments to improve health, education, social and economic outcomes equitably and at scale.
