Kuyenda Ndi means ‘walking with’.
We are walking with the people of Malawi and together we can turn homeless orphaned children
into empowered sons and daughters
Welcome to the Kuyenda Ndi website
In Malawi there are many homeless and orphaned children. This is a legacy of the spread of HIV/AIDS. Some statistics say that over 50% of the population are under the age of 15 years. Many children are left with no parents. The extended families which would normally step in to help have also been decimated. Children tend to gravitate to the towns to beg or scavenge. But each child is a gift from God. He/she is the future of Malawi. Each one is a precious son or daughter. Every child longs to belong. Every child longs to be loved. Every child dreams of a future not bound by poverty and a struggle to find daily food.
In the Chichewa language, 'Kuyenda Ndi' means ‘walking with’. We have chosen that name because many in Malawi need encouragement to face this challenge. In the UK we walk with Malawi (Kuyenda Ndi Malawi). In Malawi we walk with the people (Kuyenda Ndi Dziko). We also have an education program (Kuyenda Ndi Maphunziro). Although Malawi’s challenge seems overwhelming, with others ‘walking with them’, Malawians can do it and be victorious.
Kuyenda Ndi.org operates in both the UK and Malawi. We would love to hear from others who are doing similar work in Malawi, or who might like to walk with us, as we support Malawian local groups, schools and churches which reach out to these children.
May God’s blessing abide on you. Bishop Gift Chaula & Pastor Bob Adams
