Tell us about your projectMalawi is one of Africa's poorest nations, with a low life expectancy, high level of infant mortality and high prevalence of HIV AIDS.
Working with AFAP Action on Poverty, an independent, not for profit NGO we have been linked up with two schools in the districts of Milongera and Chisinkha in Malawi where the school children don't have access to clean water. We need to raise money so that the kids can drink clean water and wash their hands.
Here's what we're doing about itOn Sat 7 February we are asking a couple hundred people to come to an awesome live music event to raise $4,000 to bring clean water to over 2,300 school children.
We have an amazing line up on the night:
8.10pm Ukulele Big Band
8.40pm Wil Maisey
9.30pm Mystery spot
9.50pm Citizen of the World
10.20pm Samba Ninja
These rocking bands are donating their talents and time to bring this amazing night of live music and fun filled adventure to you.
Our friends at Spectrum, upstairs from The Exchange Hotel on Oxford Street in Sydney, have generously donated their venue for the night.
We would love for you to come along to the event if you are in Sydney or if you're not able to come due to distance, other commitments or fear of having way too much fun, feel free to just throw some money this way.
Here's how to helpClick on the perks to make a donation which will get you tickets to the live music event. Your name will be on the door for entry to a night of great Music for Malawi.
Or just make a one off donation to the cause knowing your money is going straight to these school kids.
