Chiradzulu, Malawi


Over the past 2 years, groups of MH volunteers travelled abroad to get involved in our educational, water, health, community and livelihood projects on the ground. Here are some accounts of their experiences:

"My time there was one of the most amazing times of my life. Staying at the complex was a blast, the people, the orphanage and the food all more than exceeded my expectations." - Ruhul Amin Akhand, Volunteer in Pakistan 2016

"I feel truly blessed to be able to have been in an eye-opening and heart-warming trip, I would advise people to go on such a trip at least once in their lifetime." - Sidra Raoof Chaudry, Volunteer in Kashmir 2017

"Going out there and seeing the work that's done by the locals and the charity has given me a wakeup call and a dose of reality. I can truly say that is by far the best week of my life so far and I would recommend it to anyone to go out there and experience what I experienced!" - Juweyria Abdullahi, Volunteer in West Africa 2018

Children of Malawi

For children in developing countries, there's a lack of opportunities to break out of a cycle of poverty and access to education, food and medical care are not guaranteed. At Muslim Hands, we firmly believe education is a doorway out of poverty as it empowers people to build a better future for themselves and their families. In 2012, the Muslim Hands School of Excellence in Malawi was established, which has focused on providing a free education to orphaned and needy children from the local community, Chiradzulu.

However, due to lack of facilities and classrooms, there are many children in Chiradzulu out of education. With your support we want to build more classrooms and facilities to meet the demand and redevelop the existing school structure, creating a sustainable and quality learning environment for the orphaned and needy children.

Q. Who can take part?
