About Malawi Adoption
Malawi is a Southeastern African country described as the “Warm Heart of Africa.” Malawi is home to a multitude of wildlife, cultures, adventures, and with the third largest lake in Africa, an array of some of the rarest and most beautiful fish in the world. There is much culture in Malawi with the various tribes including Yao, Nyanja, Maravi and Chewa being the most numerous. Malawi is among the world’s least-developed countries. The economy is heavily based in agriculture, and deals with the most substantial environmental issues of deforestation; soil degradation; and water pollution. The Malawian government depends heavily on external assistance in order to meet development needs. The Malawian government faces challenges in building and expanding the economy, improving education, healthcare, environmental protection, and becoming financially independent in the midst of low employment rates.
Children of All Nations is proud to be one of the few U.S. agencies facilitating adoption from Malawi to help improve the lives of these special children.

2. The Paper Chase
To ensure that prospective adoptive parents are prepared for their international adoption journey, our agency requires that parents complete 10 hours of adoption training as mandated by the Hague Convention. To satisfy these hours, we have developed an online parent training program that we are proud to include in CAN’s service plan. For an overview of the training program, please click here.
