Reach Children and Youth


SIM Malawi’s work to Reach Children and Youth has four main areas: Sports Friends Malawi, offering sports and Bible training; working with the Africa Evangelical Church youth ministry; training and equipping Sunday school teachers, and working with KINDLE Orphan Outreach (see individual sections).

Partnership is a key word when it comes to SIM Malawi‘s work to Reach Children and Youth. One of these is with the Africa Evangelical Church (AEC), another is through Sports Friends and a third is the KINDLE Orphan Outreach. There is a fourth element to the overall strategy and that is training Sunday school teachers but this has a much wider remit across multiple denominations.

Foundational work

This work is vital, as many Malawian churches and denominations do not have a strong theology in terms of teaching and training children and young people, so much of the work, from Sunday School materials to Youth Camps, from Kids and Youth Clubs to football tournaments, is foundational in the development of children and young people of all ages. This is why Reach Children and Youth is such a vital element of SIM Malawi’s work.
