There is no single solution to the challenge of poverty. We use a holistic model to improve the life chances of vulnerable children in Malawi and beyond through the provision of:
Delivery of a feeding programme for hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children attending Sparkle daily.
Community level first aid and health care for children, staff and vulnerable members of our catchment area.
Serving our Sparkle, and wider community with our Medical Council of Malawi approved clinic.
Provision of the only free, high quality pre-primary education programme in our area as well as a diverse range of community education programmes for other vulnerable children, guardians and community members.
A diverse afternoon programme incorporating skills from within our community to equip our over 6 year old vulnerable population with life long learning skills, knowledge and resources.
With our local community, including an active women’s group, we are developing a diverse range of community education programmes for other vulnerable children, guardians and community members, including growing our own vegetables, sharing health messages through traditional song, dance and drama. We are creating lasting partnerships within our community, and with other NGOs and government departments.
