Twin your team with a Malawi team

In many classrooms in rural Africa, dozens of students will share one textbook. Let alone have access to books of their own for their own interests. The Mpira Foundation aims to establish very modest, open-access Libraries at each of our project locations. We seek general educational text and picture books to supplement curriculum learning. Please get in touch to discuss donating.

We provide balls and equiptment

Our Sports incentive programme provides facilities and equipment for rural youth who make a commitment to their education. Donate your pre-loved balls, kit and equiptment to rural students and sporting projects that keep kids in school. We believe Education is the key to unlocking the potential of every young person where ever they are in the world.

We fund Education extension programmes

Our School partners provide education extension programmes tailored to local needs and meeting students demands. We aim to implement vocational training programmes for project participants.

Libraries and Learning Centres

The Mpira Foundation exists to establish community development hubs to advance education. Alongside our sports facilities, we aim to establish open-access Libraries and address the Book Famine that afflicts many parts of rural Africa. We aim to provide a diverse range of curriculum supplementing text and pictures books for young readers and an open-access library of general interest and reference books for communities.
