    PLEASE READ and understand our mission and STATEMENT, to assure you are in line with this organization you are applying to volunteer with.

    People from all walks of life are encouraged to apply to volunteer with Kusewera and be a part of the greater good. We do however, require that anyone working with Kusewera promotes and practices love, unity, understanding and inclusion in their own community and country first before traveling to Malawi or anywhere else to work with the children and the beautiful people we support. If you are unable to care about, respect and love people of ALL colors, races, religions and backgrounds in your own community and country, 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 or anywhere else to fulfill anyone's saviorism. We believe everyone in this world is created with equal value. We reject any ideology of hate or discrimination towards any ethnic group, religion/faith or of anyone that might be different or look different than oneself. We acknowledge the negative effects colonialism has caused in Africa, the U.S. and in many parts of the world. We acknowledge the existence of inequities, inequality, oppression, privilege and unconscious bias and aim to be active participants in addressing the very real racial and systemic injustices. We encourage the understanding of diversity, inclusion and culture competency. This is about humanity. Our motto is LOVE FIRST, then think, speak and act. If you are full of love and ready apply, begin your journey with us below! By completing this application you understand and agree with the mission and statement of Kusewera.

    How did you hear about Kusewera? (required)

    Roommate Preference

    *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 we have cultivated. We have established policies that are in line with both the mission and statement of Kusewera and the people we work alongside. Each volunteer MUST sign and return to Kusewera, the policies agreement and complete the required training in culture competency, diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias 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 apply to travel with Kusewera, 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.

    Kusewera believes that making a valuable difference in your own community is important before venturing overseas to serve and volunteer. Please explain any past or current volunteer work you have done in your own community, city or country.

    Program clinics are planned with volunteer specialties and skills in mind. In order to plan properly, please fill out the space below. Please also send us a completed personality quiz from to

    Please list additional Information: ie, Sports background, Creative background, Religious background. List any special dietary or medical needs or requirements. We aim to fulfill most dietary requests and will discuss any concerns with you prior to the trip.

    Before final acceptance on a Kusewera humanitarian service trip, I agree to sign and return the required questionnaire and policies and participate in the pre-trip training and allow Kusewera to conduct a general volunteer background check at a fee of $15, to be paid for upon receipt of payment link from a Kusewera representative, and paid prior to background search being initiated. Returning trip volunteers will be exempt from a background check. I understand the requirement to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated and will show proof of vaccination when necessary
