Creating brighter futures

Our team

The Sparkle Foundation is a group of like-minded individuals who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of others. Our ambition is to create brighter futures for children in need around the world. The registered UK charity was established to carry forward the ethos behind Sparkle Malawi, an orphanage founded by CEO, Sarah Brook in 2012.

Our work

Our current project, Sparkle Malawi provides education, nutritional support, medical treatment, love and care to over 150 orphans and vulnerable children in six rural villages on the outskirts of Zomba, Malawi.

Our mission

By working with local communities and engaging with international skilled volunteers, our aim is to create small-scale sustainable projects, which will trigger large-scale change in Malawi and in the near future, communities worldwide.


Malawi The Warm Heart of Africa
It is bordered by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast, and Mozambique on the east, south and west. Malawi is separated from Tanzania and Mozambique by Lake Malawi which takes about a third of Malawi's area.
