Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Dzaleka Refugee Camp, Malawi
July 9, 2021
IAFR has been partnering with There Is Hope in Dzaleka Refugee Camp for many years. One thing we both believe in is the power of education and the importance of keeping the hope of higher education alive in refugee camps like Dzaleka.
This year, IAFR is partnering with There Is Hope to help send 6 students from the refugee camp and host community to college. These young men and women are studying to be nurses, social workers, accountants, and engineers, all with an eye towards how they can help their community in the long run. IAFR firmly believes refugees are more than people in need…they are resilient, gifted, and talented and when countries like Malawi and organizations like There Is Hope invest in those gifts, we all benefit.

IAFR has been serving people in Dzaleka Refugee Camp since 2009. About 50,000 people (mostly women and children) have found temporary refuge here from war, persecution, and gross violations of human rights.
We visit Dzaleka 2-3 times annually, during which time this blog is most active.
Visit the Dzaleka page on the IAFR.org website to learn more!
We partner with There Is Hope - a local Christian agency founded by a former refugee serving people in the camp and surrounding host community. We also partner directly with refugee churches in the camp.
