A Small, Successful Charity Working in Malawi.

Please Help Us Build Sustainable, Malawian Run, Schools and Libraries Here

Building Malawi has developed has successfully built 2 Schools and 4 Libraries in Lilongwe, Malawi and, having bought a 22 acre site in the city, is now working to develop Lingadzi Academy - the largest sports complex in the country. This first of its kind sports complex includes the Grace Hadman Netball Court

Upon completion all projects become financially self sufficient. Our main aim is to create facilities that become sustainable for the future that do not rely on our continued support. 

100% of the money that we receive goes directly to our projects. We have Minimal UK Running Costs (unavoidable bank charges) and these are not funded by donations you make)We believe in being transparent with our donors and can tell you exactly where your money has gone.

We are actively looking for volunteers to help us in Malawi. We have a partnership with Swiss charity Play Football Malawi who run things at Lingadzi Academy and will welcome you in the country and make the most of your talents coaching sport, teaching, playing, building or gardening.

Volunteer Work in Africa

We welcome volunteers to Malawi to see our projects and offer your expertise. Everyone has something to offer and through volunteer work in Africa with Building Malawi you will learn infinitely more than it is possible to teach. Our projects are focused on buildings for schools and libraries and we also run a community sports outreach programme. Past volunteers that have worked for us in Malawi, Africa have built buildings, taught in a school, coached football and netball and planted trees. We welcome your input and place you in a project that best suits your skills. Best of all we do not charge you a penny. You simply have to cover your expenses. Contact us for more information.

Malawi School UK

We are a UK based charity whose members have a strong belief in education. Since we began we have built two successful schools in Lilongwe, Malawi and we are now working on the largest and most ambitious project yet; a community sports school. This community sports school will first and foremost offer a high quality education and secondly it will have sports facilities that will be available for people from all over the city. Please check out out plans for this new Malawi School on the community sports school page. Learn more about us. See the inspiring testimonials here.
