Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

Orfund is a small charity based in Poole, Dorset which helps children and young people in Dedza in southern Malawi who have no parents - or only one parent or relative who is unable to care for them. We do this by raising money which we send to our partners who look after, or educate children and young people with the money we raise on their behalf.

Orfund supports up to 25 children who live at, or receive support from, the Molima Family Home. We offer to support former residents with their training either in apprentceships or in higher education. We also support local schools in Dedza because it's important that children acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be able to live independently as adults.

Malawi is currently the 6th poorest country in the world. At the moment we can send just over £25 per month for each child at Molima. There is however so much more that we could do to improve the health, well-being and life opportunities of the children. Through our fund-raising we have paid for much needed improvements including solar panels, improved water supply and a major refurbishment of the home. There's more to be done including a safe play area for the children and a secure growing area for crops. And we offer to help every young person who leaves Molima with their training for employment which can cost up to £2,500.

Orfund may be a small charity but we believe we can achieve a great deal with your help.
