According to the W.H.O., Malawi is one of the seven sub-sahara countries where the proportion of children orphaned is very high. Others are Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Zambia, Burundi, and the kingdom of Swaziland. This is a result of HIV/AIDS pandemic. This pandemic has resulted in the death of productive people in our society regardless of age, race, religion, etc. We have, for sure, a very big task ahead of us to address the dangers of this deadly disease in order to mitigate its impact among the societies.

Established in 2007, this satelitte branch of POWI caters to a wide catchment area which is sorrounded by six neighbouring villages. They have plans to extend their services beyond that as long as the resources will be made available. In the near future, they have an intention of looking at the growing demand to provide assistance to orphans, HIV/Aids patients, widows, the disabled and others who are in need.

Current activities include:
-Teaching and feeding orphans and vulnerable children at the nursery school[under 5yrs]
-Providing home-based care to the chronically ill
-HIV/AIDS counselling and educate the public about the disease and ways of preventing it
-Providing food, clothing, etc. to the orphans and other vulnerable groups
-Empowering orphans through education and vocational skills.
-Establishing Nonviolence programs and trainings throughout the region and country
