Empowering Young Leaders: A Day to Remember Thanks to Your Support

Why Your Generosity Matters More Than Ever

Your unwavering support recently fueled an incredible day of learning and growth for the children at an event in Malawi, sponsored by Allies in Youth Development. From engaging lessons on communication to hands-on technology experiences, your contributions are shaping tomorrow's leaders today. Let’s dive into the details of how your support is making waves.

Communication: The Pathway to Unity

The event kicked off with a prayer and discussion of Proverbs 22:1, which emphasizes the importance of a good name and reputation. This led into how communication is an essential life skill. Volunteers and children eagerly dove into discussions about modern forms of communication like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. They now understand the significant role that communication plays in sharing experiences and fostering unity among our community members.


The day was filled with a variety of fun physical activities including football, netball, and singing and dancing. However, the highlight for the kids was screentime afterward, where they were taught how to navigate a smartphone and a laptop. The joy on their faces as some of them navigated WhatsApp and Facebook for the first time was priceless.

Our visit extended beyond just educational activities; we also ensured these children were well-fed. The day wrapped up with nourishing meals for the kids and tea for our volunteers. This nourishment—both physical and educational—sends a clear message: we care about their holistic well-being, and so do you.

Volunteer Shyreen: A Pillar of Hope

Shyreen, a devoted nursery school teacher, is one of our incredible volunteers. Her advocacy for the children goes beyond the classroom as she inspires them to focus on all parts of life for better future.

Mavuto: The Face of Resilience

Among the young lives you're transforming is nine-year-old Mavuto, who tragically lost both his parents last year during Cyclone Freddy but survived because he was sleeping in his grandmother's house, which was safe during the incident. Despite the hardships, including living in a grass-thatched home with his aging grandmother, Mavuto is now hopeful for a brighter future because of the support he’s now receiving from Allies mentors.

Every lesson learned, every skill acquired, and every meal enjoyed is a direct result of generous financial support from people like you. You're not just funding activities; you're investing in the futures of children like Mavuto, giving them hope for a better tomorrow.
