Our Mission Statement...

                    To provide and enhance the basic needs of orphans, the disabled and destitute people of Malawi, Africa.  So many have been exploited, neglected and forgotten. We will sponsor their needs with international volunteer efforts through a Christ-centered community based approach.  Our hope is to nurture their Spiritual lives as they face a harsh and difficult existence on their own.

 A Simple Philosophy...

 ... empowering  people to break through the cycle  of poverty and brokenness.

 

       The Mwana Mission Project, Inc. was founded in September of 2003 by Jan Sawa.  With a memorial gift to a charity in Malawi, in the name of Bill and Jasmine Bray, her late parents.

   Jan was raised in Nyasaland during British Colonial Rule (now known as Malawi) from infancy in the 1950's to young adulthood in the mid-1970's.  This was her home, her life.  One day she anticipated returning to the "Warm Heart Of Africa" but had no idea what a life changing experience would occur in her life on the journey back in 2007, thirty years later.

 

     The trip back in 2007 was mind shattering,  the sheer number of orphans and destitute people was overwhelming. There are virtually no government resources in Malawi to tend to the growing amount of orphans, geriatric people caring for all of their grandchildren and Albino's being traffiked for body parts... Something needed to happen, so the Mwana Mission Project, Inc. was started and partnered with many individuals and charities already established in Malawi, to help provide education, teacher support, business entrpreneurship, feeding programs, and more throughout the central and southern regions of Malawi.

 

   The Mwana Mission Project, Inc. is based in Mandeville, Louisiana, and Blantyre, Malawi. It is a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit, governed by a working board. It is a registered NGO (Non Governmental Organization) in Malawi. Please consider making your tax dedutible donations no matter the size,  it is desperately needed.  With your donation, you will certainly lift the spirits and create a great many smiles on the faces of the Malawian people...
