There are over 1.2 million orphans in Malawi, mostly orphaned by AIDS. Without adequate care and support, many of these children become marginalised and exposed to child labour and abuse. This project works in partnership with the Africa Evangelical Church (AEC) to support families caring for orphans through advocacy, nutrition, respite for carers and educational needs to ensure that these children are given hope and a future. The project also provides a day care for children under five years of age. The day care centres ensure that this group receives the necessary nutrition and pre-school education, and enables guardians to go to work.
