PLEASE READ IN FULL TO UNDERSTAND THIS ORGANIZATION YOU ARE APPLYING TO VOLUNTEER WITH: Our mission is to empower and educate children in Malawi, Africa through active and creative PLAY. We organize activities such as sports, dance, music, art and more. Our sustainable year-round programs empower the children to learn, laugh and play. Our hope is that they are able to dream for a bright future, be awakened to new goals for their lives, and be positive leaders in their communities. We aim to listen and implement locally-identified projects alongside the community members.

People from all walks of life are encouraged to apply to volunteer with Kusewera and be a part of the greater good. We encourage everyone to promote and practice love, unity, understanding and inclusion in your own country and in your communities first before traveling to Malawi to work with our children and the beautiful people of Malawi. If you are unable to care about and love people of all colors, races, religions and backgrounds in your own community, we are unable to welcome that mentality, and do not feel you should go across the globe to act like you do. We are not working in Malawi to fulfill anyone's saviorism. As we state in our policies and guidelines and in the registration notes, we are not open to those who promote any ideology of hate and discrimination or displays of disdain for any ethnic group, religion/faith or anything that doesn't promote love, unity and inclusion. Our motto is LOVE FIRST, then think, speak and act. If you are full of love and ready to work alongside the beautiful people of Malawi, apply today to begin your journey with us!

*PLEASE READ ALL - A Kusewera representative will review every trip applicant to determine if they are a good fit. A questionnaire will be sent to new applicants and their references and must be returned promptly. Kusewera reserves the right to decline a trip applicant should the Kusewera representative determine that applicant is not a good fit. If a deposit has been made by the applicant, the deposit will be refunded. Since funds raised by outside donations cannot be refunded, it is best to complete the qualification interview prior to outside fundraising.

Kusewera is grateful for the relationships cultivated in Malawi. We have established policies that are in line with both the mission of Kusewera and the people we serve alongside. Each volunteer MUST sign and return to Kusewera, the policies agreement prior to the trip. If policies are not followed, Kusewera reserves the right to remove applicant or current volunteer from consideration, participation or volunteer opportunities immediately. Kusewera is not responsible for additional costs incurred by or related to said changes, even if volunteer's trip is already in progress.

Malawi is a predominantly Christian/Catholic country. While people of any faith and from all walks of life are encouraged to travel with Kusewera, and be a part of the greater good, it would be inappropriate to promote a faith or lifestyle to the contrary.

Knowing a little bit about our volunteers helps us determine if you are a good fit and also prepare for each trip.
