    Beschreibung

    We are a Malawian local registered NGO working to create lasting change in vulnerable communities in the Chikwawa district of Malawi.
    We partner with local support groups and organisations to deliver community education and projects in four core areas:
    1. Health and Agriculture.
    2. Education & Gender.
    3. Community Radio programmes

    Our current projects are:
    1. HIV & AIDS-We work with different support groups;these are individuals who openly declared their status that they were found HIV Positive. These groups do Agriculture and Village Savings. We offer lessons on nutrition,Business Management,Palliative Care and good farming practices to the support group members.
    2. Early Child Marriages Reduction-We are working to reduce early marriages and pregnancies among adolescences in schools.
    3. Early Child Hood Education in Pre-Schools'
    We offer a number of volunteer opportunities where you can lend a helping hand to the community and learn about the inner workings of a grassroots NGO.

    Volunteer with us and you will have an unforgettable experience while making a difference in the lives of Malawians in need. While staying with us in the “Warm Heart of Africa” you will also get to experience traditional Malawian life and immerse yourself in the HIV & AIDs.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    It will be an unforgettable experience - you will get to engage in Malawian life, learn more about our culture, share your knowledge and get to know and learn from the locals. You will also have a chance to make a difference in the lives of some of the poorest people in Malawi. Volunteering can be a great way to build confidence, develop personally, learn new skills or even just develop old ones.

    The Lower Shire, where we are based, is one of the poorest regions in Malawi and there are many areas in which volunteers are needed. Let us know what your interests and skills are and we will build a volunteer program for you through our own programs or through programs of local affiliates such as schools, youth clubs or HIV support groups whom we regularly work with.

    Volunteers can offer their help as a teacher and assist in a Pre-school. Your input will be a great help and much appreciated as schools are often under staffed and lack resources. Experienced teachers are particularly welcome.

    You can assist program staff with training and awareness activities on issues such as: water, sanitation, hygiene, sexual health, HIV/AIDS, gender equality, child marriage prevention and youth development. Availability of this work will depend on which groups are active at the time and will be tailored to fit the specific needs of the group.

    Volunteers can work with our farm clubs to provide training in improved farming techniques and compost making as well as business and marketing. You will have the chance to experience what life is like for subsistence farmers in Malawi.

    As a small NGO, we are always in need of an extra pair of hands in the office. In addition to working in the field, a large part of running an NGO is spent at the office. If volunteers are skilled and interested in volunteering at the office, they can help with writing and editing proposals, research, carrying out fundraising activities, assisting with online marketing, updating social media and website design in addition to their field volunteering tasks. Skilled photographers or film makers can also contribute by making promotional materials for our local NGO.

    Volunteers will stay with a host family which is a great opportunity to experience the unique culture of Malawi. When staying with a host, we will ensure you are safe and well looked after. Your food will be prepared by the family and you will receive three meals a day. Chikwawa is one of the poorest regions in Malawi and many people struggle to feed their families so we ask volunteers to pay $5 a day towards their food as we want to ensure you are well fed.

    If you would like to explore other parts of Malawi while you are here, there are a variety of things to do on your time off. Majete Wildlife Reserve and Lengwe National Park are both easily accessible from Chikwawa - wildlife viewing can be done from a game viewing vehicle or on a bushwalk for the more adventurous. You can climb Mount Mulanje the highest mountain in Malawi (over 3000m) or go hiking in the Zomba plateau. You can visit Lake Malawi - relax by the lake, go kayaking or snorkelling! Or you can stay in Chikwawa where you can experience village life and culture, enjoy Malawian music, dance and learn some traditional cooking.

    Most international flights go to Lilongwe International Airport. However, it is also possible to fly to Chileka International Airport, near Blantyre, our nearest city. From Lilongwe you can get an executive coach to Blantyre, which takes approximately four hours. Whether you fly into Lilongwe or Chileka, a member of our staff will meet you in Blantyre and escort you to Chikwawa, using the local mini-buses.

    Volunteers are responsible for arranging their own visas for Malawi, travel insurance and travel vaccinations. We recommend that volunteers take malaria tablets while here as Chikwawa is a malaria region; these should be attained before your visit.

    Please bring culturally appropriate clothes (women should wear dresses, skirts or trousers below the knee) and clothes with light material, as it does get very hot in Chikwawa.
