BCV LOVE: The Bwanali-Chipole Victory, Inc. Volunteer Program

BCV LOVE Program

BCV LOVE is the volunteer program which allows individuals and groups to play instrumental roles in carrying out the mission of BCV during their time sacrificed in Phalombe, Malawi.
Our mission is to empower, inform, inspire and educate the children of Malawi to make life decisions that combat the spread of HIV/AIDS within their community and deal with the issues of early deaths, poverty, parentlessness, hunger, disease and homelessness.

Each program is a unique experience, tailored to YOU. We offer you a chance to go somewhere miles away from anything remotely familiar except the hearts and lives of people. We offer you an opportunity to completely invest yourself in seeing change take place in the lives of over 180 children between the ages of 3 and 6. You decide when you want to go and how long you want to stay.


  • Must be willing to spend the full allotted time of your trip (lengths vary) in Malawi
  • Must be assessed by the BCV LOVE Selection Committee as someone who can benefit from, as well as contribute to the mission of BCV
  • Must supply the required medical records and background check

Team Mission Trips

BCV LOVE VOLUNTEERS are impacting Malawi! All of the past volunteers that we have taken in the past came from incredible teams from all over the world. They help meet their spiritual and physical needs with food and supplies including medical supplies, school supplies, clothes and hygiene products. While they are in Phalombe, our BCV LOVE Volunteers support the local team that daily cares for the vulnerable children of Phalombe with exciting and fun messages from scripture, educational lessons, daily feedings, and inspiring and creative activities. Check out some of the things we’ve been able to do with the support and involvement of people all over the world.
