Kondanani (Meaning “Love One Another”) is a home for the orphaned young. It is a place of hope and life. A place where a child can find love, care and a new family. A place that cultivates a sense of belonging and security for each child; giving them the opportunity for a fresh start and the hope of a better future.

Kondanani response to the Platform for Investigative Journalism Malawi, article of 10 December 2022.

Sadly there has been some negative reporting about KCV in the local media. The Platform for Investigative Journalism Malawi has accused us of a cover up, however this is not true. They have also published incorrect information.  The following sets the record straight.

1. KCV upholds Christian moral values. There is no culture of sexual abuse or racism.

2. Charges of indecent assault were laid against one of our volunteer leaders last year. He was arrested on 4 November 2021 but released on bail and the trial is pending. We cannot comment on the trial as it is now a matter for the courts. However we can confirm that person is not a pastor and the allegations do not involve “several underage girls.” This has been incorrectly reported.

3. Kondanani is not trying to cover anything up. The person in question was immediately suspended and has not worked at the orphanage for over a year.  

4. KCV is cooperating fully with the authorities.

5. KCV is fully committed to protecting our children according to our safeguarding policy.

Should you wish to raise any concerns please email us at safeguarding@kondanani.org.


Kondanani’s Executive Director, Annie Chikhwaza has become known as ‘Mother of Malawi’ through her work with orphaned children in Africa. Get a copy of her biography and find out how the Dutch media came to give her this title.  Read how she grew up in the Netherlands and moved to South Africa where she stood against the apartheid system to help the poor and marginalised. Find out how she came to marry a Malawian pastor, Lewis Chikhwaza and how they founded Kondanani together in 1998 as an Oasis of Love.

Throughout her life Annie has had to face many obstacles, from abuse as a child to depression, suicide and divorce to name a few. Her greatest trial came when she was brutally attacked in Malawi and left for dead. Everything she had built up was destroyed and she could easily have given up.  She could have embraced bitterness and hatred, but she chose the path of love. Annie’s story is one of overcoming trial after trial and it will inspire you to never give up.
