Story

Glad Tidings Orphan Care (GTOC) is a Community Based Organisation supported by Starfish Malawi, located in the heart of rural Ngolowindo in Malawi. The area suffers extensively from the challenges of living in poverty, with the local communities facing inadequate levels of income, fragile food security and a lack of education and investment. GTOC currently has one main centre and 4 satellite nurseries run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. There are several activities taking place at the centre, including:

Gateway - Providing girls with vital reusable sanitary health kits to give them the freedom to go to school and study during their periods. GTOC has a long established and dedicated group of women who come together to make the kits.

Social Welfare Programme - Protecting and supporting vulnerable and orphaned children. A team of key workers work alongside parents, guardians and members of the community help to improve the lives of over 240 children in Ngolowindo through activities such as home visits, workshops for guardians, open health clinics and nutritional or material support.

Nursery Education - Pre-school education provides an important foundation for learning and development. Research has found that good quality education for disadvantaged children in their early years encourages all round development on physical, intellectual, creative, social, moral and emotional levels.

Nurseries Together - gives children who attend nursery schools in the UK a chance to learn how children of a similar age live and go to school in Malawi. A bi-monthly newsletter is sent out which deals with subjects such as schools, animals, houses, food and clothing.

Medical Clinics - There is a catchment area of over 13,000 people close to GTOC. Working in partnership with the local health services, the charity has facilitated 7 clinics to be held allowing the local community access to essential medical treatment.
