Jacaranda Foundation is a 501(c)3 registered charity that provides orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi with comprehensive education and care to become self-reliant, productive and healthy members of their communities.
With the knowledge that extended families and the community are the best support for orphans and vulnerable children, we also have initiatives to strengthen our students’ families and the surrounding community.

350 children are enrolled at the Jacaranda Primary and Secondary School for Orphans
29 students are obtaining university scholarships

Through our library and literacy outreach programs, we reach an additional 13,400 local public school children with our four public school libraries and our public hospital library and 620 community members at our three community libraries.
