Muslim Youth Foundation (MYF) is a group of Muslim youth who are passionate to improve the welfare of all Muslims in Malawi. MYF’s ambition is to make social services accessible to the communities. MYF also needs Muslim communities in Malawi to become independent economically. To achieve this, MYF’s strategy is to act as a bridge by finding resources in order to fill the gap in the social and economy of the community.
Muslim Youth Foundation vows to reach out to other areas where there is also a need to help in the areas of education, health, agriculture, and entrepreneurship across the country.
