Special igoo blog post today as Ben embarks upon his trip to Malawi in association with charity, Be One Percent. Ben and the team will see first hand the result of projects funded by the charity and the huge effect it has had on the lives of those in desperate need.

The charity is created from a network of individuals who pledge to donate 1% of their monthly salary to directly help some of the world’s poorest people. 100% of the money donated goes directly to care and Be One Percent have gone on to provide huge improvements, ranging from facilitating safe and sustainable water in Zambia, to improving maternal, infant and child health in Kenya.

We’re hoping Ben takes lots of pictures and doesn’t feel too travel sick when he’s travelling in a jeep for six hours, along hazardous roads!
