Founded 2003

YouthCare Ministries


YouthCare was established in 2003 to reach the orphaned street children of Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi.  We operate the SafeHaven orphanages for 7 boys and 12 girls, providing a safe home, food, discipleship, and education.  We also conduct AfterSchool Programs, Summer Camps, vocational training and a girls’ empowerment program. We are also in the midst of building a high school to serve the children of the area.


Besides the burden of overwhelming poverty, Malawi’s inhabitants are being ravaged by the growing pandemic of HIV/Aids, which has infected an estimated 16% of the total population. Tragically, this little land has earned the nickname “The Orphan Nation” because of the one million children who have been left alone in the wake of this disease.


Our mission is to enhance the lives of at-risk urban youth by equipping them with the tools necessary for academic excellence, life skills, spiritual growth, and leadership capacity, while meeting their basic physical needs.

Sponsorship Program Details
When you sponsor a child or youth through UrbanPromise International, you change a child’s life forever! With your support, our ministries are able to reach the children and youth in their communities through holistic programs. Children and youth have the opportunity to grow spiritually, socially, academically, and physically. Our ministries act as family for these children and youth, many of whom are coming from lifestyles of extreme poverty, broken homes, abuse, and circumstances that hold them back from their God-given potential.

When you sponsor a child or youth with UrbanPromise International, you become a part of their extended family around the world. Helping them break free from the chains of their circumstances, and giving them the opportunity to hope for a brighter future.
