Providing a brighter future for the orphaned children of Malawi
In Malawi, we are working in partnership with some of the world’s poorest communities to provide:
- Care for orphaned and vulnerable children
- Shelter, nutrition, sanitation, and clean water
- Education and vocational training
- Awareness-raising education around the country’s biggest killers, HIV/Aids and Cholera

30 children and 7 JCT volunteers killed, 14 Community Based Childcare Centres swept away, houses destroyed, food stocks ruined – coming to terms with the aftermath of Cyclone Freddy.
With over 8000 orphaned and vulnerable children now in its care, the JCT Foundation continues to expand its reach. Inevitably, this means resources are continually stretched.
JCT not only take care of children who have been orphaned through HIV/Aids, they also take care of those whose families cannot afford to care of them themselves.
Six boreholes dug at three Community Based Childcare Centres: one for each centre, and one for the surrounding communities each centre supports.
JCT has been at the forefront of education programmes to counteract the spread of Covid-19 in the rural communities in which it works.
A state of disaster has been declared after flooding, caused by cyclones Anna and Gombe washed away houses, roads, crops, and cattle.

With food always scarce for Malawi’s ultra-poor, JCT launches a new grow-your-own project in the communities it supports.
With Malawi in the grip of a Cholera epidemic, JCT turns its attention to building boreholes to provide safe drinking water for its centres.
JCT’s valuable work has once again been recognised officially by the Malawian Government through the re-awarding of its NGO status
JCT is working with the Ministry of Health to formalise the gathering of statistical evidence to measure the progress of its feeding programmes.
