Our Mission is to give hope and a holistic transformation to street kids and orphans in the city of Lilongwe by providing food, education support, Christian formation, and temporary shelter. Life coaching Ministries aspires to see the street-connected children and orphans becoming responsible citizens and successful leaders who will realize their potential and bring change to the world.
Therefore, we believe that “What these kids need is more than good policies and programs, but they need parents-people, adults, who will remember their names, celebrate their birthdays, know their favorite colors, and enjoy taking them to the swings. Children flourish when loved and love takes people” Greg W. Bush.
Life coaching Ministries is going to call Dzalanyama Village, Lilongwe home. Here we will run an after school program, women empowerment programming for the girls living on the street, and a feeding program.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Hamilton Douglas Banda is a graduate of African Bible College, Malawi. He is currently working on a Masters’ Degree in Organizational Development from Cairn University, Langhorne, PA. Upon graduation he will return to Malawi to build upon a ministry he started prior to traveling to the States. Life Coaching Ministries reaches children living on the streets of the capital city of Malawi, giving them food, academic and spiritual support and soon a place to call home.
Mr. Banda himself was a beneficiary of an UrbanPromise International affiliate ministry called YouthCare Ministries. His parents passed away when he was 5 years old and due to poverty, he ended up living in the streets. At the age of 8, Mr. Banda was rescued from the streets and given shelter and education through a program called Safe Haven. His organization, called Life Coaching Ministries, will provide education, shelter, Christian formation and food for street-connected children and orphans.
