Malawi Aids Orphan Community Development | Teen Trip
Help those living in poverty by being part of a team working to improve the quality of life for AIDS orphans and other residents in remote African villages. In Malawi, “The Warm Heart of Africa,” your team will bring the Good News of Jesus and offer hope for a better life. After Boot Camp training, you bus to the OrlandoInternationalAirport for a flight to Lilongwe, Malawi via WashingtonD.C. and AddisAbaba, Ethiopia. Your team will continue on to the Teen Missions in Malawi base in Chipoka, located on the beautiful shores of LakeMalawi. After a day of packing your supplies, you truck to an AIDS Orphan Rescue Unit to begin your ministry. Your project will include activities such as: clearing a volleyball and soccer field, teaching Bible Stories, singing and playing games with the orphans, helping improve literacy through phonics, and constructing a community toilet building to improve sanitation. Customs clearance has been approved for the drilling rig, so you will have the opportunity to drill new wells to provide life-giving fresh water along with the Living Water of Christ. Housing is in tents; bathing and laundry will be done using a bucket. At the end of the summer you will travel to NkhotakotaNationalPark! Have your camera ready because here you may see crocodiles, elephants, lions, zebras, buffalo and many types of antelope. A shopping day at SengaBay is also planned to shop for wood carvings, hand crafted jewelry and drums of all sizes as well as a time of relaxation on the beach.
