Buy And Make Impact
It’s our mission to maxime impact by supporting the local artisans and by contributing to local NGO intiatives like Kondanani.
BACKGROUND: The activities of Kondanani were launched by the former President of the Republic of Malawi, His Excellency Dr Bakili Muluzi. Kondanani has various children’s homes and villages: There are 166 children in total (92 Boys and 74 Girls), currently all below the age of 18.
The need for the establishment of the orphanage arose due to the high rate of HIV/Aids infection in the country, which is continuing to rob many children of their parents.
The extended family system in Malawi has largely collapsed, and HIV has become the single biggest cause of death among Malawians between the ages of 15 and 49 years old (the child-bearing years for women).
Due to the fact that many other orphanages would not admit babies because of the cost, and the fact that it is labour-intensive, Kondanani embarked on admitting such babies rather than leaving them to die in the villages. The first baby was admitted to Caring Hands Infant Home on 7 November 1998.
