How you can help


We rely entirely on the generous donations of the general public. We receive no government funding and we need your help in order to be able to continue our work in Malawi. As Zikomo operates with no administration expenses in Ireland you can be guaranteed that your donation will go directly to projects that will help those most in need.

Currently, we do not support any facility for processing online donations. The reason for this being that any of the companies that handle these transactions will charge us a percentage on any donation. As it is our philosophy to get all donations to where they are intended in the most direct way possible we do not use services such as Paypal or
