Visit - and make a difference

With the completion of a comfortable guest house in 2015, we can now offer working holidays with a difference at Smile Malawi!

If you are a supporter and Friend of Smile Malawi and want to visit this beautiful country – but also give something back, then you could arrange a working holiday with us: a holiday where you volunteer to help with a special project at the children’s home, or help at the local school, where they are always in desperate need of additional teaching assistance.

We have had friends helping with building work or maintenance, teachers helping out at the school and students coming to spend time with our children (who absolutely love having visitors!). You pay a small daily amount to cover the board and lodging and agree how you are going to help; we even offer a helpful visitors’ guide (written by one of our previous visitors) to help you make the most of your trip.

If you are interested in making a visit in future, then please take a look at our Trip Flyer for further details or contact Elspeth at
