Female Empowerment and Tailoring Program

In order to achieve our vision of empowering citizens of Malawi to be more productive and self-sufficient in aid of development, we are re-introducing our Female Empowerment and Tailoring Program. This will be focusing on the development of our local community situated around Bahasi. This will be done by creating a skilled labour force, and therefore providing further opportunity to make a liveable income. We hope that this will help to reduce poverty, as well as reducing the need to use begging and prostitution as alternative forms of generating an income. 

The program will entail sessions where women will be taught to sew and tailor using a machine. We aim to initially take on 10 women with HIV/AIDS and another 10 young and unemployed women for this program with the hope that we can continue with more classes in the future. With the money donated for this program, we will be providing two skilled teachers, fabric for six months of lessons, two more sewing machines and all other needed materials. 

We note that purchasing sewing machine’s is expensive and won’t be available to all women after this program. Therefore, we are implementing a system where the women who take part will be given the opportunity to come in and use our machines free of charge. This will allow us to fulfil our goals of turning tailoring into an income generating skill.
