Jazz for Joshua

An afternoon of live music, food, art, and prizes all for a purpose.

Joshua Orphan & Community Care was established in 1998 by a small community group in Pensulo Village. Joshua’s founders wanted to start a feeding programme for the increasing number of orphans and vulnerable children in their community. When Sylvia Avgherinos, an English Primary School teacher living in Malawi visited Pensulo to take books to a Secondary School, the group approached her for help. Through Sylvia’s involvement, interest, and enthusiasm, and with financial backing from friends and family in the UK, the Pensulo CBCC and feeding programme was established. In 2015, Sylvia was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours for her services to Malawi. The name “Joshua” was adopted by Sylvia and the community in regard to the activities being undertaken to support the orphans, vulnerable children and their wider communities to address the inadequate access to education, nutrition and health care services.

With the help of friends, family and an our amazing team, we managed to raise over £2,000
