Butterfly Space is a unique community project which aims to bring together the local Malawian community and passionate volunteers. Run alongside Butterfly lodge (set in beautiful sprawling gardens next to the lake) our guiding principles are respect for the surrounding community & the environment as well as the desire to provide a welcoming space for volunteers.
We are wholeheartedly involved in the community & are continuously running several projects on and off site. These include a Nursery School, Primary School, Permaculture school gardens, Nkhata Bay Community Information Room, Youth Club, Special Needs Group, HIV support and Nutrition workshops, Adventure Playgrounds, Media Centre and Recording Room.
Volunteers are welcome to assist in any of our longer term projects, finding an area that suits them most. If volunteers have a particular passion/ skill, we will do our best to help them get involved or set up something in that particular field.
