Where We Work
Malawi is a country of 18 million people in southeastern Africa that is famous for the spectacular Lake Malawi and is known as the “The Warm Heart of Africa”.
Malawi is among the world’s least-developed countries with a largely agricultural economy and rural population.
At our campus in Kasese, we have a fully stocked health center, maternity ward, multiple apartments for our staff, offices, and extra guest rooms where visitors often stay. Orant’s primary operating area includes around 36,000 people in the Dowa District. We also conduct outreach clinics and sponsor students in the neighboring Kasungu District.
Our campus includes a 33-acre farm plot that we use to demonstrate seed and fertilizer varieties to the local farmers. Once harvested, these crops are distributed to our staff, and the excess is given to the poor in our operating area.
What Makes Us Different
Orant Charities Africa is not a big NGO. We are a local Malawian NGO run by Malawians for Malawians and supported by free and professional consulting from a variety of US-based experts. This means we have the best of both worlds: deep local connections and free expert logistic and informational support.
Our staff of 50 is 100% African and almost entirely Malawian. This helps us to work with the local chiefs and leaders and ensure that all our operations are run with consent and involvement from the community.
