Love Support Unite is a growing, dynamic, grassroots charity that aims to permanently lift communities out of poverty through sustainable development. Based in the UK, we currently work with rural communities in Lilongwe, Malawi, implementing our unique Foundations for the Future model – with incredible results so far. Established in 2012, we are still small, but have huge ambitions for the future.
Love Support Unite grew out of its sister charity, Tilinanu Orphanage, founded by Alice Pulford in 2009. While working in Malawi on a voluntary placement aged 19, Alice found a vulnerable group of orphan girls who were surviving on just one bowl of porridge a day. On her return to the UK, Alice committed herself to raising the funds needed to build Tilinanu Orphanage, which now houses 34 amazing girls! However, the experience had made Alice only more aware of the urgent needs of wider communities in Malawi, and, so, with the help of her sister, Nina, Love Support Unite was born. Alice and Nina’s vision and tireless enthusiasm have already helped change to the lives of thousands of people, and both have received David Cameron’s Points of Light Award for outstanding volunteering.
LSU takes creative approaches to fundraising, including the sale of Love Specs at UK and European music festivals – love-tinted diffraction spectacles that turn points of light into fractal rainbow hearts! In 2017, we sold £70,000 worth of Love Specs, with 100% of all profits going to the charity, and we have some very famous fans, including Rudimental, Ed Sheeran, Pixie Geldof and Cara Delevigne.
