Where We Serve

Sierra Leone Children's Homes

Upper Banta, Sierra Leone

The Sierra Leone Children’s Homes were born out of a desire to provide our children with a more spacious and traditional African environment in which to grow up.
Our Children’s Homes incorporate two things that are highly valued in African culture: family and community.

Banta Medical Clinic

Our Banta Medical Clinic is located within our Banta Ministry Center.  With just three doctors for every 100,000 people, the need for quality medical care in Sierra Leone cannot be overstated.  Diseases like malaria and pneumonia often go untreated here, and can lead to death.  The country’s infant mortality rate ranks among the highest in the world—114 of every 1,000 children die before they reach one year old.  Sierra Leone's maternal mortality ratio (death from pregnancy-relat

Mallory Jansen Memorial School (Marjay Town)

Freetown (Marjay Town), Sierra Leone

The Mallory Jansen Memorial School (Marjay Town) is located in a rural, highly impoverished community on the outskirts of Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown. The building was originally used as COTN's flagship orphan-care facility, the Marjay Town Children's Home, but was converted into a community school in 2007 when we relocated our Children's Homes and ministry center to the Upper Banta chiefdom, in Sierra Leone's interior. 

Salima Village

Lilongwe, Malawi

“Salima Village,” a self-contained property located at the rear of the Children of the Nations Njewa Ministry Center in Malawi, is designed to resemble a traditional African village.

The village consists of eight thatched-roof huts, an open-air gazebo that serves as a central meeting place, a bathroom, and a dining hall. Each hut, which sleeps 4 to 6 guests in bunk beds, has electricity and a sink with running water.

Njewa Ministry Center

Lilongwe, Malawi

The Children of the Nations Njewa Ministry Center, situated on a 12-acre property, is conveniently located just three miles from the downtown Crossroads Mall in the capital city of Lilongwe and 30 minutes from the Lilongwe Airport.

The ministry center serves as headquarters for our Children of the Nations–Malawi staff and includes administration buildings, dormitories for visiting staff and Venture participants, and our secondary school, the International Christian Academy.

Lilongwe, Malawi

The village of Chirombo (often called Chilombo) is located to the northwest of our Njewa Mission Center, approximately an hour’s drive from Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi.


Lilongwe, Malawi

The village of Mgwayi is located to the west of the capital city of Lilongwe, right behind and within walking distance of Children of the Nations’ Njewa Mission Center. This community consists of 200 households (3,000+ people). Due to the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS, 70 percent of the population is under age 25. The majority of women are widowed or divorced and heading up single-parent households. Residents of Mgwayi are members of the Chewa tribe. Traditional spiritual practices are predominant.
