  • The Agape Orphanage Foundation is a registered charitable Christian foundation dedicated to care for orphaned children in Malawi with God as our foundation and Jesus Christ as our cornerstone. 

    Transforming a child’s life one day at a time helps build tomorrow. We equip them with life skills and development to transition them into adulthood and to become leaders in their communities. As well we provide a sense of belonging and community through creating a loving family environment at our home. 

    Our work  continues to have a powerful impact not only on the children under our care, but also on the larger community as a whole.  We provide a sense of dignity and support for the staff by training and educating them for daily life at the center. 

    Our praise report is that we have purchased land by Msundwe approximately 40 minutes out of the capital city of Lilongwe. On these 15 acres  a lot of work and construction has been going on for many months to move the family onto the land in time for them to attend their new school in September. So far we have built 2 dorms, separating girls from boys with house mothers living in each dorm. We are completing the kitchen, which will be the communal center of their gathering for meals and worship.  

 

Big Plans for 2015

 

1. Build a brick fence around our property for the physical safety of our children and staff.  For a donation of $250.00 you can have a section of fence dedicated to a loved one, to yourself, or to your family. We have many acres to fence. Each panel is 12 feet long. We have 21 panels built and only need 343 more fence panels.

2. To complete the kitchen and build a duplex to enable all of our team to live on site.

3. A vehicle for transportation.

4. Farm our land - towards sustainability by planting crops.  

5. Raise $20,000 to ship a container to Malawi with much needed supplies.

6. Bring more development programs to all our children.

7. Complete Pump House. (almost there !!!!) 

 

We humbly approach you for your assistance that you are able to give towards the care of

 

our children in supplying sustainability for feeding, healing and educating our children and

 

helping us to realize our big plans.
