Malawi- The Warm Heart of Africa
19 million total population
10 million people under 18 years of age
1.6 million orphaned or vulnerable children
1 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS
50% of the population lives below the poverty line

Despite the obstacles, God has ALWAYS called and empowered His people to change existing spiritual and socio-economic conditions through committed prayer and action. The Malawi Montessori Project began as an initiative to bring a Christian Montessori School Model to Malawi.
Education is one of the 7 pillars of society. We are here to positively impact the education system of the nation. “The child is both the hope and promise for mankind.” -Dr. Maria Montessori We believe that the Montessori philosophy and methodology, in its purest form, honors both the child, the family, and the teacher and allows for all to reach their full potential.
Through the eyes of Christ, we see children as our greatest gift and our greatest example.
“Let the little children come to Me…for of such is the kingdom of God.” Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” -Mark 10:14-15.
“Therefore whoever humbles himself as a little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.”- Matthew 18:4-5
May we always value and care for the gift God has given us.
