Kunyumba Kunyumba Kunyumba Kunyumba Kunyumba

Kunyumba is a day care centre in Malawi for all types of vulnerable children; whether they are disabled, suffering from medical problems, orphaned or from difficult home situations. It was founded in 2009. Kunyumba means home or family in Malawi’s national language Chichewa.

About us

Kunyumba is located at the Lake Malawi in a village called Senga Bay, where we provide individually tailored care within the local community, which means supporting the children, their families and the staff.

Kunyumba takes a focused and resource-intensive approach to individual care, believing in quality above quantity.

Kunyumba’s doors are to be kept as wide open as possible, which means taking care of vulnerable children of all religions, social origins and state of health.

Our Mission

  • To address the children’s basic needs of health, hygiene and nutrition
  • To give the children back their childhood, allowing them to discover some of their lost innocence and enjoyment of the world in an emotionally stable environment
  • To maximise each child’s individual capacity and fulfil their potential within society

Our values

  • Normalization: helping the children to engage with the rhythms of daily life
  • Socialization: Social integration through education based on a valid set of values to help the children to find a place in society
  • Acceptation: helping everybody to accept each other for who they are
  • Empowerment: focusing on possibilities rather than on limitations
