N4BW aims to make measurable and consistent interventions in specific areas which do not benefit from support from large NGOs. It does this by forming projects with local people, backed by the logistical support the Diocese of Zomba. Since 2013, it has provided much needed support to address needs in marginalised areas. From its inception, N4BW and VMM have been in partnership. In December 2014, N4BW approached VMM for support in the development and implementation of the Sitima Community Action Project, a grassroots project that has emerged from the local community. The project is the community’s coherent effort to address local needs.
