Destination info

Malawi is a small and beautiful country in Southern Africa, renowned for having some of friendliest people and a huge diversity of scenery. Malawi has it all, from palm-lined beaches to remote wilderness and safaris.  The country is dominated by Lake Malawi, stretching 500km down the Eastern border, estimated to take up about one third of Malawi’s size. 

 
The project is located on the shores of Lake Malawi close to the town of Monkey Bay. Around 200km from the capital, Lilongwe, Monkey Bay is one of the main ports on the beautiful lake. Still, clear waters and golden beaches are at your doorstep as well as the nearby village of Cape Maclear. Nearby attractions include National Parks and the Mulanje Massif.
  • Location: Near Monkey Bay

This programme consists of many different project areas which involve a variety of volunteer roles. They are as follows: 

 
Home Based Care
  • Putting together lessons on home based care activities such as: HIV/AIDS, malaria prevention, personal hygiene, drug administration, recording information, first aid, wound care, bed bathing, infection prevention, sexual health awareness, nutrition and digestion, TB and rehabilitation.
  • Possibly helping to set up a new Home Based Care programme in another village.
 

Malaria Project

  • Assist with malaria prevention techniques to help minimise the epidemic and protect the local communities against the mosquito transmitted disease, such as manufacturing specially custom designed mosquito nets and spraying interior walls of buildings with mosquito repellent.
  • Conducting malaria prevention research and education lessons to the local community.
 
Field Dressing Clinic

For all projects it is important to remain flexible in your attitude and work ethic and be prepared to help in any of the areas that are developing and use your initiative to instigate new project areas with the advice of project staff. Thus we do ask that you arrive with an open mind, positive attitude and strong work ethic in order to utilise your time best and in a way that leaves behind a lasting impression of your time and the volunteer project in Malawi. Itineraries and activities are subject to change.

Destination info

Malawi is a small and beautiful country in Southern Africa, renowned for having some of friendliest people and a huge diversity of scenery. Malawi has it all, from palm-lined beaches to remote wilderness and safaris. The country is dominated by Lake Malawi, stretching 500km down the Eastern border, estimated to take up about one third of Malawi’s size.

 

The project is located on the shores of Lake Malawi close to the town of Monkey Bay. Around 200km from the capital, Lilongwe, Monkey Bay is one of the main ports on the beautiful lake.

What were the highlights of your trip?

This was the best experience of my life so far! Beautiful location, amazing people, friendly staff...I couldn't have asked for more! The children and local communities are so friendly, and so grateful for every little thing we do to help. The weekend trips were fabulous, although arranging transport with the staff did seem to be an opportunity for them to make extra money.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

Speak to people that have volunteered in malawi before. Discuss the supplies you intend to take with you - either with people already in Malawi or who have volunteered there in the past. Also, contact the airline as they give volunteers extra baggage allowance. Take clothes etc that u dont mind giving away.

They were the people I worked with on the projects (not managers of MVO). They work so hard to make the volunteers experience special. They were so welcoming and showing us their culture.

Go out there with clothes, medical books and shoes, toiletries for the people over there. Also pots of vitamins and lots of paracetamol is what they really need! Understand that there time frame is alot different to ours. Make an effort in learning their language, they are so grateful!

What were the highlights of your trip?

The volunteering projects were amazing, so worthwhile and it really felt like we were helping to make a difference. The way you formed such close bonds with your groups and such good friendships. I think the highlight of my trip was when on my birthday we had managed to arrange for all the HIV groups to come together and perform their dramas, songs and dances. It was so nice to see them all interacting with each other, sharing knowledge etc. A definite highlight. The weekends were of course awesome as well, Cape Maclear? Perfection!

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

Take rehydration sachets, a torch and insect repellant! If you get ill, seek medical attention asap, The Billy Riordan Memorial Clinic in Cape is great, it will cost you 10,000 MK but you get two weeks coverage with that and the doctors and everyone are so helpful but really don't wait for the project co-ordinators to realise you are ill and need medical attention!
