Where We Work
The Passion Center for Children is located in Zomba, Malawi. Malawi is a land-locked country in South East Africa, bordered by Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique. It enjoys a temperate climate, but lacks abundant and accessible natural resources. The Shire River is Malawi’s major river and joins the Zambezi River in Mozambique. Approximately 20% of Malawi is covered by water.
Malawi has a population of approximately 18 million people, 70% of which live in rural or village settings as subsistence farmers. Despite being one of the poorest countries in the world today, Malawi is known as the ‘Warm Heart of Africa’, because of its kind people and friendly faces.
The Passion Center for children is based in Zomba, Malawi, the former capital of the country. Through our various ministries, the Passion Center for Children serves over 150 villages, cares for over 350 orphans, Child-Headed Households (CHH), infants, special needs children, and provides biblical training to over 700 pastors in over a thousand rural villages. The first Passion Center site, launched in 2004, is based at Mulunguzi Community Church and coordinates all ministries in-country. The second Passion Center site was launched in 2017 at Jali Community Church in Jali.
