Moments from Malawi: Reflections from student volunteers

Thanks to all for the positive feedback and support of these posts on social media. We are so proud of our students, faculty and all who contribute to the work of the Malawi Children’s Mission Partnership (MCM).

This week offers a glimpse into the essence of the MCM and what it is Binghamton University student volunteers, faculty and others, accomplish through their dedicated efforts to improve the quality of life for the children of Malawi who have been orphaned.

Is it just us or do those happy smiles reflect success?

“The MCM’s goal is for children to see themselves as loved, valued and thriving.”

MCM recently thanked Joely for raising over $700 for the Young Women’s Initiative at the farmer’s market this summer.

A generous donation of iMacs from the Riverdale School offers a big technology step forward for the staff and students of the MCM.

Effervescent fun, courtesy Team Binghamton University!
