Malawi in South-East Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world, currently hosts close to 40,000 refugees and asylum seekers originating mostly from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda and recently Mozambique. Some of these are the children and grandchildren of people who fled conflicts as far back as the 1970s, living in refugee camps in other countries before moving to Malawi in search of better opportunities. Dzaleka Refugee Camp is the biggest refugee camp in Malawi. It is located in Dowa District near Malawi’s capital city Lilongwe and hosts around 28,000 refugees and asylum seekers. 



The vision of THERE IS HOPE is to see refugees and their host community escape poverty and become self-reliant.


There is Hope exists to provide access to education and income generating activities to refugees and their host community as well as to strengthen their spiritual well-being.
