HELP (Hope, Educate, Love and Protect)

We believe it is every child’s birthright to receive hope for a better future, education to grow, unconditional love, and protection from disease and illness.  We address Malawi’s teacher shortage by pairing government teachers with local assistant teachers and international volunteer teachers. With a strong emphasis on sustainable development, we strive to transform primary (elementary) schools into epicenters of social and economic development. Our partnership with the socially-conscious tourism agency Wilderness Safaris helps us to bring our vision of rural development to the most remote regions in Africa.
