As an African mother, I have a strong desire to elevate the welfare of rural-based children through improved provision of basic health and education using affordable technologies. Concurrently, my focus includes economically empowering teen mothers through entrepreneurial skillset enhancement.

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with street children, child-headed households, orphans, children with disabilities and many more wonderful people.

Children First Trust consists of fellow like-minded individuals with a lifelong commitment to philanthropy and mentorship for vulnerable children in Malawi. We trust that by pooling our various resources we will reach more vulnerable children with our interventions in the quest for a better life for all.
