About us

The Trust was set up in memory of Nick Webber, who died tragically in a car accident at the age of 28 while working in Malawi as a volunteer lawyer. Following the spirit of the work Nick was doing, we aim to help some of the poorest and most marginalised people in Malawi by working to increase access to education, healthcare, and justice.

Nick’s friends and family guarantee to pay for all administration costs and travel expenses themselves, ensuring that every penny donated to the Trust goes directly to help people in Malawi.  The Trust is run by a board of six trustees and a wider committee of advisers. Annual reports and policy documents are available from our documents page.


Malawi Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Fewer than two thirds of Malawian households own a table, bed, chair, or bicycle, and the majority of Malawians can only afford to eat two-thirds of the minimum recommended daily calorie requirement. Average life expectancy is 52.

Hundreds of people die every day in Malawi as a result of diphtheria, dysentery, HIV/AIDS related conditions, malaria, malnutrition, tuberculosis, and other preventable and treatable illnesses. The effect is devastating: thousands of children are orphaned every year; the sick and orphaned generally rely on family members to support and care for them, many of whom are themselves struggling to survive because of sickness and poverty.
