Orphan Feeding












Project Location and Target Group

A. Located at Katsekaminga and Nadzikhale Communities, Traditional Authority Kamenyagwaza, Dedza District, Republic of Malawi.

B. Targeting desperately poor and hunger-stricken orphans and other most vulnerable children.


Project Summary

FOP aims at saving and serving the rural child from effects of poverty, hunger and environmental hurts. The project works at promoting social-well being of the child whilst discipled for Christ.


Project Background

Children especially the fatherless in our serving communities are facing double plights and greatest limitations to advancing in basic education, health, care, protection and access to other social services due to severe hunger and ultra-poverty levels in many Malawian homes. Due to this, lots of orphans and other vulnerable children have dropped out of primary and secondary schools due to severe hunger and high poverty levels as they go to bed most of times without food, they lack basic clothing and shelter.


Project Description and Goals

FOP provides a basic meal to a child once a day after knocking off from school. The child receives after-school lessons after taking lunch at a Feeding Centre. Volunteer educators offer lessons to children such as personal and environmental health care, moral issues, word of God, prayers, music and sporting activities before each child goes back to own home. Volunteer Cooks, Educators, Community Social Workers, leaders, School Teachers and FOP Officers work collaboratively in service delivery and monitoring.

Training Centre


Project Location and Target Group

Located within Dedza District, Republic of Malawi.


Project Location and Target Group

Local pastors, missionaries and other church planters and workers.


Project Summary

Christian Training Centre (CTC) aims at equipping local Christian workers who are serving the Lord in rural communities but have little no opportunity of attaining Bible training due to economic, educational and other physical hindrances.


Project Background

Most Christian worker and pastors lack spiritual empowerment for them to be effective in their serving communities. Bible schools are rare and very expensive for many Malawian Pastors to join, hence CTC provides an opportunity for all levels of Christian workers to receive Bible training.


Project Description and Goals

CTC provides basic mission and bible training for local Christian workers and pastors. There are two semesters a year where students come at CTC in Dedza for 2 weeks of intensive equipping. For the other 6 months they conduct practical ministry in their own serving communities before coming back for the second semester. Missionaries from overseas and other Christian Pastors help in lecturing and monitoring.


The Church serves with the Malawi Government in Leadership Development Services in Christian missions and Ministry through its registered Bible School in Malawi known as Christian Training Centre (CTC) - based in Dedza District.


Amount required to complete

Construction

Dedza (pop: 700,000) is the main township of Dedza District, located about 85 km south of Malawi's capital, Lilongwe.


92% of its population is illiterate, and 75% of children run away from primary school because of poverty, hunger, lack of clothing, lack of parental care, hopelessness and other cultural factors.


Many destitute orphans and other vulnerable children become beggars or prostitutes - or take up house and farm work in exchange for food,  with the increased risk of exploitation and abuse.


Child trafficking is common as many of these children go begging on the border, while others are enticed by evil people to be ‘cared for’ outside Malawi. Early child marriages are common as the culture considers girls to be useless, without the need to be educated like boys.
