Raising Malawi : a charity organization founded by Madonna
The ambassador of peace, Prem Rawat, has been advocating peace in the world since he was only 4 years old. He has given talks about peace for millions of people who are inspired by his peace education.
When talking about initiatives to build sustainable peace in the world, it is equally worth mentioning the pop star and entrepreneur, Madonna. The singer is also a well-known American recording artist. She was awarded with the Golden Globe winner's prize and she has largely contributed to the promotion of global harmony. In this article, our goal is to shed light on the charity foundation created by Madonna, which is called "Raising Malawi".
When was "Raising Malawi" created?
Madonna is a famous solo artist, selling more than 200 million albums worldwide. Apart from being a successful singer, Madonna is involved in the fight against extreme poverty in Malawi. She founded the organization "Raising Malawi" with Michael Berg in 2006. It is a non-profit organization.
The objectives of Raising Malawi
Millions of children in Malawi are orphans because their parents have died of HIV/AIDS. "Raising Malawi" fights for the protection of the lives and the rights of Malawian defenseless children.
To address the issues of deep misery in this country, Madonna endeavors to crack down on the sufferings of 2,000,000 orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi. Therefore, she created her foundation with the joint partnership of her aforementioned associate.
- Raising Malawi is in charge of sustaining at-risk children and caregivers with the basic needs in life. These include securing a shelter for each child. Additionally, they are concerned with providing healthy food and proper clothing to be abandoned and defenseless children.
- The foundation advocates for the rights of education among children in Malawi. Additionally, the organization provides grants for orphans to sponsor their education. Beside this, Raising Malawi provides psychosocial support and emotional care to children who have lost their families. When children are defenseless, they are often subjected to emotional abuse by the adults who take care of them.
- "Raising Malawi" enhances the children's rights for education and medical care. It is common knowledge that without a caring family, children are deprived of access to education and medical care.
Raising Malawi brings their support to the community
To deal with extreme poverty in the Malawian communities, Madonna's foundation draws the attention of partner organizations to join their efforts and meet with national and local officials.
To achieve high-impact programs, the foundation works to transform lives by engaging donor nations, corporations, and the general public in their efforts.
Building peace in the world through humanitarian actions
Raising Malawi is involved in benevolent actions to do good to Malawian children, especially those who are exposed to abuses and danger. To join the efforts in the fight for children's rights, it is essential to join an association or an existing organization with the same purpose.
For example, The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), which works for peace building and peacekeeping, hires v efforts. It is concerned with the distribution of humanitarian aid to the most impoverished people. In addition, this foundation aims at providing peace education to deprived people; that is why it teaches the culture of peace even to prisoners in order to help them reintegrate in the society.
