Malawi Children’s Village (MCV) is a village-based support program that serves over 2,000 HIV/AIDS orphans living with members of their extended family in 37 villages. An independent, non-sectarian organization managed by Malawians, MCV provides a wide range of supports for vulnerable children and families, including healthcare services, secondary and vocational education, shelter, and agricultural programs.
YPI provides a range of direct supports to MCV through financial donations, in-kind contributions, and technical assistance.
It has provided bicycles for orphans, permitting them to pursue their education more easily, and it has built housing for families in distress. YPI employees and volunteers periodically work on-site to provide technical assistance to MCVstaff.
