Malawi Orphan & Community Care
In Malawi an estimated 560,000 children have lost their parents to AIDS, and each village community often supports over a hundred of these orphaned and vulnerable children. By volunteering as part of our team in Malawi, you can help these children get a better start in life.
There is an ongoing need of improved facilities for the project and your team’s focus will be to extend these facilities. Mixing cement, carrying bricks and digging foundations alongside the local youth groups is essential work which allows the communities to better support their children.
You will also have the opportunity to help in the feeding centres, preparing food and playing with the kids. You’ll be surrounded by shy smiles and big hugs! The beauty of this project is the opportunity to experience the generosity of a Malawian welcome, work side-by-side with local youth groups and immerse yourself in rural Malawian life.
Quest Overseas is a proud founding member of the Fair Trade Volunteering Movement - www.fairtradevolunteering.com - which ensures overseas volunteering is truly worthwhile for both the volunteers and local communities.
Development projects overseas can give huge benefit, but if badly managed, can be extremely damaging - do your research and make sure your impact is a positive one!
Quest Overseas guarantees that we will not:
Give false hope or promise anything to a project that we cannot actually do
Put our volunteers at risk, physically or emotionally
Exploit our volunteers- we have no secrets about our aims and long term goals
Drain our project partners financially- 100% volunteer expenses covered by the participants, not the local community
What Quest Overseas will do is:
Provide all funds for the construction project to be completed, as well as finance to maintain it into the future
Work directly with our local project partners- only people who live the project can really tell us what the communities need
Provide dedicated project managers who ensure all our volunteers have a responsible and efficient use of time
