Description

The Cause:

Kids with disabilities and their families suffer a lot of stigma and discrimination within their homes, families and communities. We wish to offer them love, hope, encouragement, acceptance and teach them about the love of Jesus. We also want to offer tangible assistance in terms of rehabilitation, preschool and special education, nutrition rehabilitation, provision of specialized equipment, and access to orthopaedic surgery.

The Task:

We are looking for skilled workers who can come in and provide services we either do not have the manpower for or the funding for.  Our office needs lots of help. We are looking for someone with organizational and computer skills who would be able to assist us in facilitating the smooth operation of the office. Ensuring reports are completed in a timely manner, assisting with financial accountability, data collection, maintenance, and assisting the Malawian staff upgrade their technical skills.

Support: 

  • help the volunteer source a place to stay
  • orient the volunteer to Lilongwe and to their work at Children of Blessing Trust
  • help the volunteer to learn basic Chichewa
  • provide emotional support and encouragement.

Volunteers can come any time in the year EXCEPT for arriving between Early November and Early January
