We are a 501(c)3 non-profit in educational partnership with orphaned and at-risk children & youth in Mangochi, Malawi.


Every day, young people in Malawi face tremendous barriers to education: among these challenges are life threatening diseases like malaria & HIV/AIDS, malnutrition & hunger, child marriages, & long distance commutes on foot to school, to name a few. Our mission is to provide opportunities to EDUCATE youth in Malawi, INSPIRE young minds through knowledge acquisition and the Word of God, and EMPOWER young learners by equipping them with the skills required to create a future of self-reliance.


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.

Go to the people. Live among them. Learn from them. Love them. Start with what they know, build on what they have. But of the best leaders when their task is done the people will remark:
“We have done it ourselves.”

“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
