Further to our plans to build on and support BPF’s work in Lilongwe, in May 2018 the Malawi NGO took a bold step to purchase a 7-acre site in rural Lilongwe. Having undergone a 5-year construction project, our masterplan is coming to life… BPF Malawi’s sports & education community centre comprises a full-size sports pitch, two netball courts, a clubhouse (with two learning & office spaces, changing rooms, kitchen & canteen), on-site accommodation with 30 beds, a manager’s house, and on-site parking.

Volunteer with us in Malawi

After almost a decade of running rugby coaching expeditions in Africa, our volunteering focus is now in Lilongwe, Malawi. Join us on-site and in the surrounding village areas to help BPF Malawi’s team deliver youth sports and community-based activities, contributing to BPF’s impact goal.

Your two volunteering options are as follows:

1. Group visits

Apply anytime and, alongside our travel partner, Orbis, we’ll liaise with you to plan your group’s visit to Malawi. We welcome applications from schools, clubs, colleges, universities and businesses.

2. Scheduled departure trips – for individuals joining us in Malawi
