CHISOMO, CHICHEWA WORD FOR UNMERITED FAVOR…GRACE…

We are a beautiful collision created by the crash of the western and eastern cultures. We are a generation of young dreamers and visionaries who realize that throughout human history generations have been blessed to be a blessing to others. We are always curious, always imagining, always searching and always asking questions.

We are a beautiful collision created by the crash of the western and eastern cultures. We are a generation of young dreamers and visionaries who realize that throughout human history generations have been blessed to be a blessing to others. We are always curious, always imagining, always searching and always asking questions.

We are risk takers, thrill seekers, and explorers. We are always open to new possibilities. We are firm believers in the idea that the world is more malleable than we give it credit for. We believe we can make a dent in human history when we open up our lives for others, especially the less fortunate.

MISSION STATEMENT

We are a group of ordinary friends from around the world devoted to carrying one anothers burdens and using our gifts, talents, and resources to make a sustainable difference in impoverished African communities.

VALUES

Integrity: Personal and corporate honesty that results in freedom from corruption in the operation of our programs.

Generosity: Wise giving of our time, talent and money to influence change in our lives and the lives of others.

Creativity: The use of imaginative thinking to generate new and dynamic ideas and solutions within our programs.

PROJECTS

We have three distinct projects of focus; all of which uniquely communicate the idea of Chisomo (grace).

Children Centers: We have after-school learning centers for children who live in the villages. Objectives: General education, health and hygiene education, sports and recreation, and spiritual development [discipleship].

Theater of Dreams: We run sports clinics in strategic locations around Lilongwe, Malawi, with the goal of opening a sports academy. Objectives: Sport-specific skill development, community development, general education, and spiritual development [discipleship].

Leadership Development: We run age and gender-specific seminars and conferences for youth. Objectives: Practical leadership training, community development, general education, and spiritual development [discipleship].

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We live in a broken world. A world dominated by poverty, disease, wars and issues of social injustice. However, with those problems also comes an opportunity. A chance to stand against the wind of apathy and to live out the belief that all people are created equal. As volunteers we are driven by the radical love and grace of Jesus Christ, who continues to transform our hearts to understand His passion for people and see His beauty in culture. His love compels us to care and serve the people He has created regardless of their race, gender, or religion. It is our desire that those who encounter The Chisomo Idea may experience the freedom of truly knowing their creator as He pulls them into the turbulence of His story. Living lives of impact to know Him and make Him known is the primal essence of our movement.
