Changing Stars Malawi

Making life-changing differences to Malawi's little stars


Changing Stars Malawi is a family run charity, who want to create a long lasting legacy to help the children of Malawi.
We ensure that all proceeds raised go to the children to help them with their future.
Our aim is to educate so that children have choices in how they live their lives and are not restricted by the hardships of every day Malawian life.
We want to make a life-changing difference to the children of Malawi.

get involved

It’s easy to get involved with Changing Stars Malawi. A small amount of effort really does go a long way…


Our first visit

The Dawson family have been involved in projects in Malawi since 2009 when Joe, the eldest of three boys, visited with his school in Leeds. His two brothers, Mattie and Charlie visited for their first time in 2012, and 2015 respectively.

Charlie makes regular visit

Charlie - who is a primary school teacher - has been visiting much more regularly for 3 months each year and has made many contacts in Blantyre, Mangochi and also in Cape Maclear, a more rural village on the shores of Lake Malawi.

The whole Dawson family gets involved

The whole family supported by the family business, Children’s Corner Childcare (CCC) then became involved in a number of projects across Malawi.

Our first sponsorship

Clients, friends and associates were invited to sponsor a child to go to school. This project has proven to be so successful and will be one of the main aims of the charity going forward.

Changing Stars Malawi grows

The family made the decision to set up a formal charity in the UK which can support the work in Malawi, so that there is a clear vision going forward. It was also important to have total transparency and accountability for the funds being raised. Two other trustees were invited to join the family and their contribution/support is greatly appreciated too.
