Partnering for Success
MCV serves over 2,000 orphans in 39 villages with a relatively small budget. Part of the reason we’ve been able to achieve so much while remaining a small organization is through our willingness to work with partners that also seek to serve the area’s orphans and vulnerable children. 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.
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.Learn about a Recent Rotary Project

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.Visit The Open Arms Website
