Online Charity & Non Profit Fundraising Services

Founded in 2007, Chifundo is dedicated to the education of some of the most underprivileged children in the villages of Zomba, Malawi. Chifundo is now committed to the continuous education of these children to secondary and vocational levels and beyond.

The Chifundo Foundation aims to identify the underprivileged children of Malawi and improve their outlook by providing access to education as well as offering the physical, educational and social help that they need to succeed. With your help, we hope not only to offer education to these children from primary through to third level but also nutritional and social monitoring, transport where required, books, uniforms and shoes; all the elements necessary to give the children the best chance of success. Our goal is to ensure each child can reach their potential.

A small team of dedicated local individuals, all with academic and community responsibilities have joined us by forming a Chifundo Trust in Malawi. Their responsibilities include identification of the most suitable and most needy children for selection; coordination of the project between the students, parents, schools and teachers; and management and allocation of the resources of the foundation.

A little funding goes a long way in Malawi. In this academic year, Chifundo now have 70 children in the foundation, including children in primary, secondary & third level education as well as our first child to take up an apprenticeship in carpentry. Click here to make a donation or a standing order. Your help can truly make a difference.

We began our journey with 5 students entering primary schools in 2007.

Each year the Chifundo Trust (a group of locals with academic and community responsibilities) in Malawi select 5 of the most deprived children from the poorest villages in Zomba to join our programme. These individuals also manage the allocation of the resources provided by your donations.

Now, with your unwavering support, we assist a total of 70 children (35 boys and 35 girls) through primary and secondary school in one of the poorest places on earth.

Each summer we hold our Summer School. The children arrive to our purpose-built classrooms to receive an education they could only have dreamt of previously. Qualified teachers, from Ireland and England, deliver a hands-on program through English & the improvements in the children's abilities have been reflected in ever-improving grades in the classroom.

At Chifundo, no child gets left behind & we will also provide assistance to children who do not achieve the grades required for secondary school or college by providing skills training.
