While there are many places in the world with children living in dire conditions, the Darwin Project has tried to follow the wisdom of Mother Teresa and has “adopted” the Mangochi Orphanage and School in Malawi as our focus on children in Africa.

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one”

Malawi Typhoon

In 2023 a devastating typhoon swept across Malawi destroying all of MOET’s crops, food supplies, two of eight solar panels, and several structures.

DPI provided funding for seeds to grow new crops, food supplies, sanitation and shelters.

We should thank the children for teaching us grace under seige.
