Volunteering in Malawi
Moni, hello and welcome to Malawi.
Malawi is a small, landlocked country in south eastern Africa, whose friendly and generous culture has earned it the nickname ‘the Warm Heart of Africa’.
With an average life expectancy of 54 years and ranked 173rd out of 188 on the Human Developing Index, Malawi remains one of the least developed countries in the world.
61% of the population live below the poverty line and although school enrolment is high, quality of education remains low.
Improving access to quality education, healthcare and sustainable livelihoods are the priorities for VSO’s work in Malawi – could you help us bring about change?
We're experts at providing the support you’ll need to make a meaningful contribution in this welcoming country.
All the best,
Volunteers in Malawi
