It’s true – Malawi really is one of the friendliest and welcoming countries in the world – just ask any one of our volunteers!

Whether you have been to Africa before or not, Our Malawi Programs is full of surprises and has plenty to offer.

On your weekends and spare time you can organize some fantastic trips with us – such as dodging hippos and elephants in a riverboat safari in Liwonde national park, partying in nearby Cape Maclear or simply chilling out on the beach right on your doorstep!

Children Orphanage Volunteer Program

The children at the orphanages have lost their parents mostly due to HIV and Aids. Others have been abandoned after birth or left in the streets to fend for themselves.

As a volunteer in a children’s home, you will be helping orphans and street children whose age range from birth to 14 years. Volunteers are involved in a variety of tasks.

These include helping with meal preparations, cleaning, maintenance, playing with the children, helping with homework and getting the children ready for school.

We also work with homes for children with physical and mental special needs. The homes look after babies from birth to 14 years old. Volunteers care for the babies, feeding them, changing nappies, bathing and dressing them, playing with them, taking them for walks as well as helping with their physiotherapy.

Working in an orphanage is a positive, life-changing experience. Volunteers help vulnerable children and the children receive much needed attention, hope, encouragement, support and love from volunteers.

Accommodation & Meals

You will stay with a family host. Three or four other volunteers may stay with the same family. This will be within a walking or cycling distance to your volunteer project.

Malawi Volunteer Program is open to:

We invite individuals, couples, families, students, researchers, and groups (churches, colleges, and student associations).

Our programs are flexible and volunteers can arrive and depart on any day all year round.
