About VOH: Africa

About VOH: Malawi
Village of Hope: Malawi cares for orphans and vulnerable children and their families by providing free education, health care, a feeding program, and spiritual discipleship.
They are located on the outskirts of the capital city of Lilongwe in an area called Kauma.
VOH: Malawi works with a team of local community leaders (chiefs, elders, pastors, and others) to identify the most vulnerable children in Kauma. Currently they care for nearly 300 students from baby class (pre-school) to standard 3 (grade 3).
Long Term Goals
Recently VOH: Malawi purchased a 3+ acre site where they plan to develop a full pre-school to grade 12 school. Currently they have 2 buildings on the site which include 4 classrooms and a small administrative office.
The greatest need is an ablution (bathroom) block and an administration building so the staff can have a safe place to work on site. Future plans include more classrooms, a healthcare clinic, a kitchen for expanding the feeding program, a community hall, and a levelled soccer pitch.
How To Get Involved
Child sponsorship makes it possible to provide education, nutrition, healthcare, and spiritual discipleship programs. A new class of pre-school children will be available for sponsorship at the beginning of each school year. So don’t worry if you were not able to sponsor a child at this time.
Support Jef & Renatta
VOH: Malawi is being built from the ground up, and you can help. Their next goal it to build an administration building at a cost of approximately $100,000. You can contribute by designating your donation to “VOH:Projects.”
Canadian missionaries Jef and Renatta Walton are the directors of VOH: Malawi. They have led this work for the last 4 years. The Walton family raises their own support, including salary and living expenses. If you want to help provide for them you can designate your donation to “VOH:Leaders.”
Pray for Jef and Renatta Walton and their family – for health, safety, vision, and resources. Pray for the teachers and staff at VOH: Malawi. Pray for the children and families who are a part of the VOH program, and for their community.
