Area 49 Orphanage

Area 49 Orphanage is located in area 49 just outside of the city center of Lilongwe, Malawi. The Orphanage was created to help aid children in the community with access to food and support groups amongst each other. The orphanage provides classes for young girls about woman empowerment, and the importance of woman education. Other classes include STD and sexual responsibility awareness, and support groups to keep the youth positive despite their hard circumstances.

Backpacks for Africa aids the orphanage by providing backpacks and school supplies to the orphans who are apart of the orphanage. BPA also provides student fee sponsorships for those students who need it the most.
