Amitofo Care Centre - Malawi

The Master & I have are currently staying at the Amitofo Care Centre near Blantyre in Malawi. It is a Buddhist Orphanage started by Master Hui Li, under the auspices of the Amitofo Charity Association. I's takes care of 220 orphans and has a primary school on the grounds. Apart from the standard curriculum, they also learn basic Chinese and Buddhism. A select group of gifted boys and girls are also being trained by two teachers from the Shao Lin Temple in Chinese Marital Art. They will eventually become teachers themselves and teach other interested children.

The Master & I visiting the Kindergarten at the orphanage. These are the youngest members of ACC, 3 and 4 years old. But they dance and sing as happily as all the other kids










These kids are materially poor by our standards, but seem so happy and contented, they play with any little thing they are given, and the grounds are scattered with these home-made playgrounds.









A Toddler, one hand in imitation of the joined palms the older children use to greet us. Every time we come across someone they place their hands together and say "Shr Fu hao, Amitofo" greeting the Master (Shr Fu) and myself.
