During the month of June Ambassadors For Children in co-operation with the Blessings Complex and the Malawi Project fielded two teams to Malawi for service projects. Ambassadors for Children (AFC) is a not-for-profit organization based in Indianapolis, Indiana and is dedicated to serving children around the world through short-term humanitarian service trips and sustainable projects.
Both teams had the opportunity to assist in teaching as well as service projects at Mtendere Children’s Village near Lumbadzi, and in a clean up and painting project at Bottom Hospital in Lilongwe.
Pictures below are students from Miami University based in Oxford, Ohio. The university is often referred to incorrectly as Miami of Ohio. The school is a selective coeducational American public university founded in 1809 in the university town of Oxford, Ohio. It has a primary focus on educating undergraduates.
