Programs

All children have basic needs. In the developed world they are often taken for granted. This is not true in Malawi. It can be the difference between life and death; or at the less extreme, success in life.

What are they? They include enough food to eat; a dry roof to sleep under; clothes to wear; a place to go to school; help when you get sick….pretty basic.

Malawi Children’s Village (MCV) attempts to address all these issues. MCV has a physical location with offices, schools, a clinic, experimental gardens and fish ponds, as well as many village based services.

The programs of MCV exist not only to care for Mangochi district’s HIV/AIDS orphans and vulnerable children but also to improve the welfare of the community as a whole.  This is done with a belief that the stronger the village, the better care and nurturing the orphans will receive, and fewer parents will be infected with HIV.
