Chimwemwe Children’s Centre
Chimwemwe Children’s Centre supports vulnerable children and their families affected and infected by HIV/AIDS. The project was set-up with the help of one of our Rotarians, Amanda, in January 2009 for the children on the streets of Blantyre, Malawi. It aims to bring long-term change in the lives of the children, by supporting them in their family/community and helping them to gain education and training, to break the cycle of poverty.
The programme's main aims are to help the street children of Blantyre to reach their full potential. As well as getting the children off the streets, they help the children gain an education or trade, and support the children's reintegration back into their community and away from a life of poverty and crime. The programme assists children back into school, by providing school uniforms, school funds and writing materials. For those in secondary school, they pay for text books, school fees and school funds. In addition, the most needy are provided with food and shelter as required.
