We are a 501(c)3 non-profit providing educational support to orphaned and at-risk children in Mangochi, Malawi.


Every day the people of Malawi face life-threatening diseases in the form of malaria & HIV/AIDS, leaving thousands of children orphaned or struggling to pay for daily needs & education.  Our goal is to provide the educational and livelihood support necessary for these children to walk confidently into a future of self-reliance and hope.  


From day one we have been able to offset administrative costs with a legacy investment which means 100% of your giving goes directly into our programs in Malawi.

“I have been given a chance to open the door using this key. It is a key, I have seen her doing it, she is walking whilst seated. It is a key of peace. It is a key, see him, he knows how to count and read from the key. It is a key, you can use it to open success’ doors, to be who you want to be. Do not look down, you can make it. For you have a key.”
— excerpt from "It Is A Key", a poem by Grace Regina, scholarship student
Let us embrace the opportunity, the opportunity RUM is providing us leaders of tomorrow, so that we may be self-reliant in the near future and become role models in our communities. For true leaders are rooted in education.

But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
— 1 John 3:17-18
