WHAT WE DO

MISSION
We build families for children in need, we help them shape their own futures, and we share in the development of their communities.

VISION
Every child belongs to a family and grows with love, respect and security.

Our Children s Village in Lilongwe was established in 1994 and was our first in Malawi. It currently has 12 family homes where we take care of over 1000 children, all of whom have lost one or both parents and have no relatives who are able to look after them. Education for both the children in our care and those who live in the wider community is provided by our three schools.

Our S0S Nursery provides a safe and constructive environment for close to 200 babies and young children, our 50S Primary and Secondary Schools provide quality education for over 1,000 students in total.
Once our young people have finished their secondary education, they have the opportunity to continue their development at our 50S Vocational Training Centre.
This centre teaches them practical skills which are needed in the local area, and has room for almost 150 students. By this stage in their lives, our young people are ready to take the first steps towards independence, and our youth programme supports them through the transition to adulthood.

Alongside our Childrens Village and educational facilities, our 50S Medical Centre offers treatment to up to 60 patients every day .We offer HIV/AIDS screening and treatment, run vaccination programmes and provide other preventative measures.

Our therapy centre provides speech, physio- and occupational therapies to 1000 disabled children whose parents also benefit from practical and psychological support.

BACKGROUND
Malawi ranks at 53rd on the UN Human Development Index, one of the lowest Placed countries in the world. Without access to clean water, sanitation and healthcare, living conditions, especially in rural areas, can be extremely poor.
30% of Malawis children do not start primary school. Over a quarter of Malawian children are involved in child labour. Up to 78,000 children work on tobacco farms, where working hours are often long and in poor conditions. Nicotine poisoning for tobacco farm workers can be very damaging. Whilst young boys typically work in the fields, girls can work selling goods or are forced to engage in commercial sex work.

1 in 5 children in Malawi is malnourished. An under-five mortality rate of 100 per 1000 is still far too high, despite improvements in recent years.

The Directory of NGOs in Africa is a growing directory of (all) non-profit and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and emerging organisations in Africa. The listed information consists of the organisations contact information, its aims, current projects - activities, photo gallery,volunteering opportunities etc. Further, it features information that help donors have a peace of mind such as organisation registration number, a note to confirm organisations contactability, a link to an organisations financial auditor etc. The main aim of the directory (print and online) is to make information on NGOs in Africa readily available to businesses that want to be involved in Africa, donors, volunteers and ordinary people who want tomake a difference in Africa. We believe anyone and everyone can make a difference.
