The Jacaranda school is a realistic and highly efficient project. Every dollar, euro, pound or Malawi kwacha raised is maximized to benefit the children. The impact is immediate and makes a tremendous difference.

Our team is entirely made of volunteers. Luc Deschamps, the executive director of the Jacaranda Foundation, is based in Malawi and supervises the development of the school.

Your donation will contribute to:

* Feeding and educating 400 orphans
* Operating AIDS prevention and health programs
* Paying teachers salaries
* Purchasing textbooks and classrooms equipment.
