Orant Charities invites you to join us for the World Premier of Yankho, an innovative Virtual Reality film debuting at the Denton Black Film Festival's Technology, Education & Culture (TEC) Expo.

Yankho is a Malawian docufiction film that tells the story of a day in the life of Nankhoma, a woman from a village in rural Malawi. Through Virtual Reality, we see how a Malawian mother’s dreams for her daughter are altered by the challenges of rural poverty.

Yankho, is proudly written and produced by Orant Charities to help further awareness and support for our mission to make sustainable impact in Malawi through a holistic, local, and data-driven approach to supporting women and communities.

Orant Charities is seeking volunteers to assist with the debut of Yankho at the Denton Black Film Festival's Tec Expo on January 27th and January 28th. Volunteer duties will include signing up guests for film screening slots, assisting guests with VR Head Sets, and sanitizing equipment between film screenings.

If you are interested, or have further questions, please reach out to Erin Parker at eparker@orantcharities.org

Mission Statement

Orant Charities Africa makes a sustainable impact in Malawi through a holistic, local, and data-driven approach to supporting women and communities.

Description

Since its inception, Orant Charities Africa has accomplished a lot with a little. In 2014, we purchased a health clinic in Kasese, Malawi. When we arrived, storms had devastated the property, leaving it in desperate need of repair. During our first year of operations, two clinicians ran the clinic on their own. A team of only five professionals managed all other operations and administration. Though our team was understaffed and our facilities were not ideal, we treated 30,000 patients that year.

Now, our 50 employees manage ongoing projects in Agriculture & Business, Education, Healthcare, and Water & Sanitation. The Kasese Health Center has a reputation of being one of the cleanest, best-stocked and most well-equipped rural medical facilities in the country. Our clinicians know many of their patients by name.

Orant Charities Africa is supported by Orant Charities United States, an American private operating foundation dedicated to our same mission. Their goal is to support Africans in locally driven development.
