Give to people in Malawi

Without the (financial) support of others, we as a foundation cannot exist and therefore cannot help the children in our country. While they so desperately need our support. You can help us by making a donation, this can be done privately or business.

Opportunities to donate

You can donate to a specific project or in general. You can choose to support us once or monthly. You can also donate via your cell phone. We explain this further below:

Private donation

When you become a donor of Friends of Africa, you join us in building a bright future for the people of Malawi. As a donor, you can decide how much you want to donate and whether you want to do this once or monthly. We spend your donation as we see fit and allocate it in full to the projects. We will keep you informed of our expenditures and results through our website, digital newsletters, our social media channels and our annual reports. If you want to donate to a specific project, you can do so as well.

Business donations

From a business perspective, you can support us as a company, foundation or fund. You can become a partner or make a structural or one-time donation. These donations are income tax deductible. If your company does a specific amount for a particular project, you can indicate this in the donation or by contacting

Donate once or structurally

Do you feel moved by our projects and want to give children in Malawi a future? Make a donation! This can be done online through the various donation options or by bank transfer. You can specify the amount and whether it is a one-time donation or a structural gift. We then process your data according to GDPR regulations. If you want to stop your donation, you can let us know by e-mail or telephone.

What impact will your donation have?

When there is no school nearby, young children have to walk an hour to school each morning. Watch the video of one of our volunteers on location in Mangochi to hear more about the need for education in this region.

The children in the affected area have to walk an average of 4.5 kilometers to Namiasi school and 3.2 to Samamma school. This is an average 1-hour walk for the children. Bolera has 8 villages with a total of 3,500 adults. There live in the 8 villages, 3690 children between the ages of 6 and 10. Specified per village are the numbers:

  • Bolera village, 750 children
  • Mawuma village, 470 children
  • Mdoka village, 320 children
  • Katumbiri, 280 children
  • Chimatiro, 500 children
  • Nkali village, 860 children
  • Mikongolo, 300 children
  • Matumula, 210 children

There is 1 public school in Bolera called Palm Beach Primary school. This school is privatized and charges school fees. The school fees amount to 18,000 kwacha per year, which translates to € 23.00. This is unaffordable for most families.

Of all these children, 2,102 are currently attending school. Of which 1364 attend Namiasi, 338 attend Samamma and 400 attend the Palm Beach private school. This means that 1,588 children are not receiving an education. Not only is the distance a problem but also the fact that the schools in the area are overcrowded. The schools do not have room and space for more children. For this reason, we want to start building a new school with your help.
