Upendo Children’s Village is currently home to more than 60 orphaned, abandoned and endangered children. We provide a safe home, medical attention, regular meals, proper clothing, a sound education, and most importantly, the love of God.
While a nutritious meal is a luxury for most orphaned, abandoned or endangered children in Malawi, every child living at Upendo Children’s Village receives 3 meals a day.
Upendo buys quality local produce and also grows vegetables and maize onsite to ensure consistent supply, as well as to teach the children how to farm.
All school-age children are enrolled in school and receive additional educational support from hired, qualified tutors every day. Our aim is to equip the children to excel in their studies.
Our tutors make sure the children stay engaged in their course work, regardless of their learning level, and their report cards have shown consistent improvement. Many now rank among the top in their class.

Our staff provides on-site medical treatment and first-level response to illnesses like malaria and HIV/AIDs. Upendo also conducts regular health assessments for the children and routine hygiene education.
Everyone who lives and works at Upendo are part of one big happy family. They all truly love, care for, protect, and encourage one another.
our hope & prayer
Our desire is that Upendo will reflect God’s unfailing love, and that everyone involved will continue to be transformed by and through the will of our Father in heaven, the love of His Son, Jesus Christ, and the power and truth of the Holy Spirit.
