Mangochi Orphan Education and Training (MOET) is a community-based, co-educational day school for orphans and vulnerable children in the Mangochi district of Malawi by the lakeshore. It provides not only primary school education but also practical skills training in a caring environment which respects all belief systems. MOET is partially self-sustaining and this is significant in a country which is one of the poorest in the world. By producing and selling its own goods in the local community the school is reducing the amount of dependency on donations from outside.

CARD's foundation is to provide emergency relief assistance and rehabilitation support to victims of natural and man-made disasters. CARD emphasizes on disaster mitigation, prevention and livelihood recovery of victims in its development support initiatives. CARD understands the poor as people deprived of the basic necessities of life, those whose livelihood is at risk, those oppressed and powerless victims of human injustice. CARD considers that poverty is structural and if institutions and structures that have the mandate to manage and control resources do so with even-handedness on issues that affect livelihoods and rights of the people, then greater realisation of right to development will follow.
