Malawi Music Fund
Founded in 2007, Malawi Music Fund uses music and the arts to improve the lives of some of Malawi's most needy and vulnerable orphaned children and young people. We work with Malawian musicians and teachers in running residential workshop weeks in music, art and sport in each school holiday. We also provide bursaries to support the children through secondary school. We fund school fees, uniforms, shoes and books and have provided bicycles for children who have far to walk to and from school. Now, after 10 years, some of our young people have completed secondary school and are being funded by us to undertake further education or vocational training. One of our boys is now studying at university. The aim of all our activities is to enable orphaned young people to break free of a cycle of poverty and unemployment.
