How you can help


We rely entirely on the work of volunteers for all of our activities. Our volunteers are social work academics, practitioners and others committed to improving the life chances of vulnerable children and adults in Malawi. through a mutually beneficial relationship with social work and social workers in Malawi to support culturally meaningful responses.

We are entirely dependent on donations from individuals and small grants to provide our services. We support projects that are directly relevant to the support of vulnerable children and adults and to social work.  


If you could support our work by creating your own fundraising event that would make a huge difference. We can support you by providing a Guide which sets out ideas of how to achieve this.
