Lipiri is a rural community in central Malawi. Most people here depend on agriculture for their livelihoods and are vulnerable to food shortages in times of drought. 

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Lipiri:
  1. Families struggle to grow enough food to feed their children year-round.
  2. Children aren't learning to read or write well because schools are overcrowded and lack resources and trained teachers.     
  3. Drinking dirty water from unprotected wells makes kids sick.

Your support is making a life-changing impact for children in Lipiri.


67 children under 5 were treated for malnutrition and mothers learned how to feed their children to keep them healthy.


2,170 children can read and write thanks to reading camps, helping them improve their performance in school.


110 children learned their rights and how to protect themselves and advocated for girls to stay in school.


406 children feel valued and returned to school after 92 leaders were trained to reach out to children who dropped out.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Lipiri community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Lipiri community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Lipiri community.

“I like writing stories that concern my community, hoping people will appreciate what is happening. Journalism is the career of my dreams and with World Vision, I am sure I will realise my dream.”
