Malawi Foster Care became an independent charity in 2014 and is managed by Katie and Zoe. Prior to that it was run as an independent project under the wider umbrella of Tilinanu orphanage which is managed and sustained through Love Support Unite, a charity that focuses on engaging volunteers in outreach programmes facilitating positive change.
The volunteers from Malawi Foster Care are friends with and frequently work alongside the team from Love Support Unite. The orphaned children from both projects live within the same area of Lilongwe, some even being siblings. They go to school together, sing together, and social events are organised for the children where they can interact together. The charities continue to work together supporting one another, seeing the work they do as unified.
