Our Team

Made in Malawi was founded in 2011 by a group of like-minded friends united by a desire to help the children of Malawi. It was founded following the meeting of Johnny, Ben and Maxine at Lake of Stars Festival, Malawi in 2010. Johnny, Ben and Maxine, whilst exploring the local village Chipoka, came across Amazing Joy Day Care center and witnessed firsthand the poor sanitation, unsafe buildings and lack of resources that the children and teachers were subject to. Following the visit to Amazing Joy and with the help of friends back in the UK, the trio began the fundraising and building of a new Nursery School for the community.

Since 2010 the Made in Malawi team has grown and the people below have been instrumental in the achievements that the charity has made to date. Everyone at Made in Malawi gives up their time free of charge, Made in Malawi has no paid staff. In addition to this the team generously cover all expenses, including flights, other travel, accommodation and meals out of their own pocket. This allows Made in Malawi to ensure that the money donated goes along way and that every penny goes directly towards the projects we run.
