We are a voluntary adoption and foster care agency in existence for over 90 years. We were interested in helping the people of Malawi care for the many orphaned children in the country by helping care givers develop skills in their work with these children. We have provided training to groups of these care givers particularly focusing on therapeutic play techniques. We hope to collect and send out play materials to be distributed to CBCCs through the auspices of The Eye of the Child.,,We have also did some teaching to social work students at the Catholic University of Malawi and are part of a Steering Group that is currently working with The Chancellors College of The University of Malawi to assist them to set up an undergraduate Social Work course. As part of our links with CFIF (Children and Families International Foundation) we have agreed to coordinate, collect and ship social work text books from all over the UK to send to Chancellors College in Zomba, giving them some teaching materials to use with students.,
