Volunteer with us


Volunteers are at the heart of what we do here at Classrooms for Malawi and we love to celebrate their achievements. We work with volunteer groups from UK schools and communities to companies throughout the year on building projects and on an annual summer building project in Malawi with our Classrooms for Malawi Volunteer Team

Volunteering is so important to us and there are loads of ways you can get involved as a volunteer!


Can you give 2 weeks of your time and energy to improve the lives of the children of Malawi? If so, Classrooms for Malawi want you to join our summer 2019 Volunteer Team!
About our work in Malawi:

Classrooms for Malawi believe that education is the most sustainable route out of poverty. For this reason, we build schools in some of the poorest communities in Malawi – but we can’t do it alone! That is why we take you to Malawi with us to complete a building project with us as part of our summer Classrooms for Malawi Volunteer Team. Applications now open for summer 2019.

Come and join the Classrooms for Malawi family – we need volunteers like you!

For more information please contact: info@classroomsformalawi.org

*Please note, all volunteers must fundraise a total of £1000 to go towards our building project and are responsible for covering the costs of their own flights.
