Fisherman’s Rest Community Projects Malawi and FROM Wales - Award Winning Charity.

It feels good to write.


This year we became an award winning charity and presented at the Global Solidarity Summit (more on that later on in this post).


Hub Cymru Africa has awarded us as a winner for one of the 2023 Partnership Awards: “The Future Generations Award”





Here is what Hub Cymru said about us:


The Future Generations Award has been won by FROM Wales, Haverfordwest, and Fisherman’s Rest Community Projects (FRCP), Blantyre, Malawi. This award is interested in how partnerships embrace the spirit of the Well-being of Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015.

FRCP has supported communities in southern Malawi for 30 years, responding to practical concerns raised at grassroots level. FROM Wales was established in 2012 to support the work of FRCP through a shared vision and equitable decision-making, including on funding, initiation of projects and overall governance. The FRCP board of trustees consists of two Welsh residents and three Malawian residents. Together, they lead on projects involving tree-planting, water infrastructure, education and women’s empowerment.

As a result, Joe was invited to talk about the Tree Project and our unique working model at the Global Solidarity Summit 2023.


Harold joined him for a Q&A panel.





Here is what Joe said about the experience:


“The summit in Treforest was brilliant. I found it a privilege to formally accept our award on behalf of FROM Wales and FRCP.

The event was attended by Welsh charities impacting projects and programmes all over Africa.

It was a non-stop day, talking and connecting with so many other fantastic organisations. It was a great chance to network and link up with like minded people. Especially with Bees for Development. One of the Tree Projects’ goals is to introduce bees into the forests as they grow. This will bring farmers increased income and nutritional benefits - so watch this space!

Delivering our workshop on the Tree Project model sparked a lot of interest, we hope that charities will continue to talk with us and replicate similar models across Africa.”


The day highlighted the wealth of experience and expertise that FROM Wales and Fisherman’s Rest Community Projects possesses.
