Final Thoughts On Malawi
So it has got me thinking about how each of us can support and
encourage women and families who are making a real difference in their
lives, even if we cannot visit with them personally. Forums like this
are one way to show that the issue of overcoming poverty is on our
hearts and minds. I'll be thinking about other ways, and I hope you
will too, because one of the most important things I take from my two
weeks in Malawi is the value of showing that you care. Are there things you are doing to nurture and encourage women who are working to strengthen their lives?
Kaundama village women - always singing!

Phil traveled for two weeks in May to Malawi with colleague filmmaker/photographer Smith Patrick to learn about how women's village savings and loan associations impact families and communities. It was Phil's seventh trip with CARE.
