Partnerships

Malawi Children’s Village has served approximately 6,000 orphans over the past 13 years, while remaining a relatively small organization with limited funding.  Part of the reason we’ve been able to achieve so much with our limited budget is our reliance on partnership organizations.  While we would never be able to list all of the countless individuals and organizations that have helped MCV support orphans through the years, below are some of our most valued partners.

Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders, South Central Alaska Profesional Chapter built a safe drinking water system on the MCV campus. You can watch a video about the project here.

Open Arms Infant Home

When a fire burned down MCV's Infant Rehabilitation Center in 2007, Open Arms built a brand new center. Open Arms Mangochi cares for orphaned and vulnerable new born babies and toddlers in the MCV area. At between two and three years of age, those children that can are reunited with their extended family, and their progress is monitored by the Open Arms Outreach team.

Rotary International

Since it's beginning in 1997, MCV has had financial support from several Rotary clubs across the USA and beyond. Most notably, Rotary clubs have provided grants for MCV irrigation projects, the bednet program for malaria prevention, and post-secondary scholarships for orphans and vulnerable children.

The Light Foundation

MCV has partnered with the Light Foundation to provide much needed light in local primary schools and the homes of primary school students.

Solace International

Solace works to integrate education, healthcare, agriculture, and economic opportunity at the community level in developing countries with the goal that projects become self-sustainable, and a source for future local business and community leaders. Solace has partnered with MCV on many successful projects, most notably the funding and constructing of classrooms and dormitories at MCV's Gracious Secondary School

Together! ACT Now

Together! ACT Now uses theatre to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. Together! Act Now's Malawi Initiative has achieved tremendous success using theatre to educate thousands of villagers in the communities surounding MCV. In 2009 alone the project distributed over 10,000 condoms, directly reached 5,000+ people, and tested over 350 people for HIV.
