Our Malawi volunteer programs aim to make a difference - especially in the lives deprived and neglected children.
Malawi volunteer work includes volunteering in orphanages, teaching in primary and secondary schools, and working as a medical volunteer in local hospitals and clinics. 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, and maintenance, playing with the children, helping with homework and getting the children ready for school.
Schools in Malawi are under-funded and do not have the resources to employ enough teachers for the large number of children that attend. Any contribution you can make to the schools in terms of volunteer teaching is greatly appreciated.
Medical volunteers support the vital and varied work of the local clinics and hospitals. The medical and health program is suitable for pre-med students, medical students and volunteers with medical qualifications. Volunteers without medical experience also play an important role in assisting in the local community clinics, doing office work and teaching HIV/AIDS awareness in schools.
