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.

Through our library and literacy outreach programs, we reach an additional 5,050 local public school children with our two public school libraries and 420 community members at our two community libraries.
 
According to our 2016 Evaluation report, the Jacaranda School has better educational outcomes and better school infrastructure compared to a similar regional public school.
