Evangelical Lutheran Development Service (ELDS)

Evangelical Lutheran Development Program (ELDP) was established in 1989 in response to a request from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Malawi (ELCM) and the Government of Malawi with the aim to provide assistance to Mozambican refugees then in Malawi. To aid local communities, the Rural Community Motivation and Development Project was established with a focus on food security, functional adult literacy, reforestation and safe and clean water. The program has evolved into an integrated community approach.
