1. Food Security
The main aim is to ensure that community has enough food and sustainable means of getting food

2. Health
Ensure that community has access to health information and are living free from preventable diseases and at least have access to health services
3. Environment
Ensuring community to understand the importance of living in a conducive environment where they have basic need and sensitise them on global warming and climate change.

4. Human Rights
Ensure that community knows their rights particularly this time when Albinism is at a threat in Malawi.

5. Livelihood
Ensuring that community is having income generating activities and sustainable means of getting basic needs in their lives.

6. Education
Ensure that all children are going to school. Offer assistant to orphans and less privileged children in order for them to complete school.

7. Water and Sanitation
Ensure that community has good clean and safe water and good sanitation for a health living.
