Mission Statement


Malawi is known as one of the world’s poorest nations, and has close to a million orphans due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and Malaria outbreaks. With Kuséwera, our mission is to enrich the lives of these children in orphanages in Africa through active & productive play. We create affordable humanitarian trips that enable volunteers from all walks of life to travel with us and personally help implement the Kuséwera program. We encourage and invite anyone to volunteer and, in turn, gain valuable perspective while making a long term difference in the lives of the children.
