There is only one world to live in.
Support us, to conserve this world
Yet the current figures on the development of the world population give us reason for deep concern: While in 1950 there were still 2.5 billion people living on our earth, today there are already more than 7.7 billion; for the middle of this century almost 10 billion are predicted.
In large parts of the western and industrialised world, the population has increased comparatively slowly in recent decades. On the other hand, our consumption of resources, the emission of pollutants, the use of toxins, the production of waste, to name just a few points, has grown considerably, so that our ecological footprint is becoming ever larger.
The consequences of this unrestrained growth -

The goals of our projects in Malawi meet very precisely the expectations and specifications of the UN Population Fund:
The measures of our projects are supposed to contribute significantly to limiting the rapid growth of the population in Africa.
Unfortunately, many influential organizations and groups still reject this promising approach, often for religious or traditional reasons. But also indifference and lack of interest of official bodies in this central problem of our time prevent a solution that does justice to the urgency of the situation.
The UN Population Fund's (UNFPA) World Population Report 2022 gives frightening figures:
The number of unintended pregnancies per year is 121 million. This means that almost half (48 %) of all pregnancies are unintended. In southern Africa, the proportion of unintended pregnancies is particularly high, at 91 per 1000 women.
The reasons for unintended pregnancies are manifold.
The main causes cited are:
More than 250 million women who do not want to become pregnant do not use safe, modern contraceptive methods.
Only 57% of women are able to make independent decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and related rights.
