Malaika Orphanage is a non – Sectarian, non-political organization for young people of vision, talent and energy. With its membership and partners coming from all levels of the society it attracts people of both sexes.
The word MALAIKA (an angle) in our name is a concise statement of our primary intent. To ensure action on pressing needs rather than talking about them. Over 6 years of progress it seems apparent that no mistake was made in choosing the name of this mighty movement. In ever increasing number of our young volunteers are responding to the appeal of this name and volunteering for the services at home and abroad. It is a Blessed name to its members and the Nationality for it represents to them new and deeper consecration, new ideas and new aspirations. It also represents a greater cooperation and dynamic training to all our people.
We do our work in every possible place that needs our help at No.30.kotze street Johannesburg. By learning experience and skills Young people need international exposure to the complicity of the modern societies. Through working with organization they receive education and experience and they become qualified to do a work. They learn to accept different values and become responsible, active and return home as effective witness. Friendship through these activities if shared is an experience between international and National experts to stand for others people’s life.
Making the young generation gets involved in the planning, preventing and fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic by sharing their views, knowledge and attitude in areas of difficult so as to become responsible citizens
Helping African Child grow (save the children of the world)
A prepared future life for an African child
Our mission is to encourage young people live a protective life form HIV/AIDS. This fact must be impressed upon the minds of our children and youth. It must be woven into the very fiber of their being. The teaching in schools must all be designed to impress the minds of our children and young people that their mission as individuals must be the mission of the whole people to protect and prevent HIV to the entire world. If this is done when they are young the impression will never leave them. When they come to the years of responsibility and are called to decide their life services. They will surely be influenced by this great fact. And will come to remember which friends did not manage to pass the difficult age with Aids.
The field is the world. It is to the world. We work hand in hand with international organizations around the world to teach about voluntary work about the spread and prevention of HIV/AIDS. This means that we must go to all the world continents and divisions. We must navigate all the great rivers and lakes of all countries; we must work our way into the heart of all countries. We must learn the language of the people, that’ is our mission to the world.
Having spread our selves and gotten a foothold in all these lands as we have, it does not seem so difficult to do this work, and yet it is a great work still.
To finish this work we must inspire our young people to consecrate their energies and lives. Our old men cannot go out to distant places and they are likely to die less than young people. So young people need to learn more from the old and endure the privations incident to the fields in which they live.
That work must be done a young class of people, and they can hardly begin too young. Some of the strongest and the grandest people of this last century were men and women who lived a wonderful life over many years ago. We have a very definite message and why should not our young people, strong in God; understand clearly the mission committed to them? Why should not they become giants and great fighters of the killer disease AIDS among the people? So they can have a story to tell in their old age.
As we look upon this faster epidemic today, we have much to encourage our young people In and out of schools to go forward with the work. We have much to thrust us on. To impel us forward. Much to cause us to make earnest efforts to perform this work and fulfill this mission
We want to inculcate the thought in our institutions every where and wherever we come in contact with our young people or our elder people either, That we have but one thing to do, is to keep our bodies gifts from God.

According to the South Africa status, only adults who are sick with TB or AIDS can get the disability grant that is temporally. Today millions of children are unable to go to school and are being denied their best chance to escape poverty, it’s hard to change their life when they do not know how to read or write.
