In Malawi an estimated 560,000 children have been orphaned due to AIDS. Thousands are forced to take jobs at an early age and live on the street without any family guidance. A village community, however, will often support over a hundred of these orphaned and vulnerable children. You can help communities give these children a brighter start in life by constructing school buildings and feeding centres, working with youth groups and on other community and education projects.
This is your opportunity to experience the generosity and warmth of a Malawian welcome. Malawi has widespread rural poverty, a situation exacerbated by HIV/AIDS. Living and working alongside the community, immerse yourself in rural Malawian life while your project helps provide food and education for orphans and vulnerable children in Pensulo and surrounding villages. You will construct and renovate crumbling feeding centres and school buildings - mixing cement, plastering, laying mud-bricks and carrying water. You will also get the chance to spend time in local schools and feeding centres, surrounded by smiles, and work side-by-side with local youth groups on educational projects.
Spend six weeks volunteering with the orphaned and vulnerable children of Pensulo, working and supporting the local communities. This is your chance to help give the children of Pensulo the start in life that we all deserve. Through your hard work and donations we can build infastucture that will change peoples lives.
