Despite its stable democracy and flourishing tourism industry, Malawi is among the poorest, under-developed, and most-densely populated countries in the world. Rich in culture and warm spirit, the Malawians are challenged with major agricultural, health and educational issues.  Many Malawians rely on agriculture but increasing climate variability results in poor crop yields. The HIV/AIDS epidemic plagues Malawi with a devastating impact on children, mainly due to lack of education, surrounding health-care, sanitation, sexual responsibility and protection.  All of these challenges tie back to education. A shortage of teachers, resources, sanitation, poverty and long commutes contribute to the education crisis in Malawi.

Malawi has one of the lowest per capita incomes in the world and heavily relies on partnerships with foreign aid agencies and nonprofit organizations because of their limited resources to invest in education and healthcare.  However, Malawi is reaching significant progress towards development.  Monumental improvements to education-universality of primary school education have been made. Additionally, Malawian HIV Rates have dropped a noteworthy amount of nearly 5% over the past decade. Partnerships are the fundamentals in the developmental improvements of Malawi and are essential for the continuation of these positive trends.
