Welcome to SIM Malawi
SIM Malawi is a Christian mission organisation dedicated to sharing the love of Christ in Malawi in both word and deed. We do this in five areas as we look to: Pursue the Unreached, Build the Church, Reach Children and Youth, Impact the HIV/AIDS Crisis, Advance Mission
Special Feature - Project MW96255 AEC Orphan Care Program – Malawi
Vision of the project: To equip the Africa Evangelical Church (AEC) in Malawi to show God’s love by meeting the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of orphans & vulnerable children, and support their extended families, through a program of community visiting, secondary school scholarships and establishment of an income generating scheme in order to allow the program to work towards becoming self-sustaining and an associated under 5’s day care centre. Theaim is to start 5 programs (and day care centres) in 5 different locations over a 5 year period.
Day Care Centre Kids: Often having visitors allows us to ‘stand back’ and see afresh the impact of our ministries as we see things ‘through their eyes’. So, it was a joy to have some long term friends and supporters with us in May & as we took them around we delighted in seeing the growth in capacity of our Phingo orphan day care centre teacher who was taking the kids on a ‘field trip’ to show them where & how they grow rice (left). And then back in the classroom the bible lesson reinforced that it is God that made this amazing creation and designed each living thing with special characteristics so it would be able to do what was needed! This kind of investment in the youngest kids really equips them to excel when they get to primary school combining both knowledge and a strong Christian worldview.
Pray that God will be glorified as the church volunteers support the orphans in the program in a variety of ways. Pray especially that volunteers will be able to help encourage their spiritual lives.
Pray for wisdom in collating & analyzing all the evaluation feedback so that we can discern God’s desire for the future of the program.
Continue to pray for wisdom in how best to mainstream OVC programs into the AEC
