Since 2010 FACE supports young, underprivileged people to be able to live a life of economic independence. Economics students, as well as management consultants founded the non-profit organization, after they were confronted with the seemingly hopeless life perspectives of the young generation in Malawi. Motivated by the lasting impressions, they developed the basic idea to FACE, which they tested in a pilot project.
The Road to Economic Independence
After weeks of training young Malawians, this created a bicycle taxi corporation that blossomed in the following years. The combination of entrepreneurial training, personal coaching, and micro credit defined FACE at the beginning of its founding.
Sustainable Aid through Education
The fundamental experiences led to the insight, to invest into the educational and personal development of young people in order to break the spiral of poverty. The establishment of a free secondary school in Malawi in 2013 was the next logical step as an educational organization.
More than Malawi
In the meantime, FACE is not limited to Malawi, but also wants to promote education among the poorest in other countries such as the Philippines.
