Since 1993, we have consistently worked to improve the lives of underprivileged children in Malawi, by initiating or supporting educational medical and entrepreneurial projects in rural and urban areas throughout the country.

We work to improve the education, health and general welfare of children and young adults in Malawi. By providing them with the chance to go to school, to eat at least one meal a day, and to teach them tangible vocational skills we aim to improve not only the general condition of the lives, but also to give them a self-reliant future.

 

Our Mission

  • Advocate and foster the education, health and well-being of children and young adults in Malawi.

  • Provide educational and medical assistance for children and take all other measures to improve their welfare.

  • Establish, maintain, support and manage educational and medical institutions, provided that these are created for the aims and objectives of the Children’s Fund, on a non-profit basis.
  • Transfer ‘ownership’ and responsibility for CFM projects to local Malawian management as soon as these projects are sustainable.
