Malawi Orphan Fund

Malawi Orphan Fund supports the Home of Hope, an orphanage in Mchinji, Malawi, which cares for over 600 orphans from all over Malawi, providing food, shelter and good quality education in a loving environment.

About us

The Malawi Orphan Fund is a UK based charity that both financially and prayerfully supports the Home of Hope, known locally as Mchinji Childrens Home, in Mchinji, Malawi.

There are over 500 needy children at the home, where they are given shelter, food, medical care and love. Home of Hope also gives over 600 children an education, from Nursery to Secondary classes.

A Vocational Centre is currently being built to further prepare the children for an independent life. Here they will be gaining skills in technical and trade courses beyond the age of eighteen, enabling the students to gain the required expertise for employment following completion. Read more about Home of Hope here.

In 2015 we resolved for there to be annual visits to Home of Hope by Malawi Orphan Fund to enable us to more effectively support its work. It was with great pleasure that three of our trustees were able to pass on your donations on our most recent visit in September 2015. Read more here.
