Mbawemi Women & Children Project

Einsatzort: Malawi, Afrika
Aktions-Bereich: Unterricht & Bildung
The ‘Mbawemi Women Association’ is a local non- governmental organization which was formed in 2003 in Mzuzu, Malawi.“Mbawemi’ means ‘good woman’ in Chichewa which is the local spoken language. This organisation has vowed to strive for the improvement of the social- economic challenges encountered by women in general and other vulnerable people from their surrounding communities.

Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

Mbawemi has an early childhood development centre in the community to support women from the surrounding area to be able to go to work or work the field and know their children are looked after. The basic school offers 2 classrooms with 40-50 children each.

To educate especially women about their human rights, Mbawemi runs an outreach programme to create awareness and possibilities for women to develop leadership skills to further grow the movement of women empowerment.

To offer women resources to be more independent in a male dominated society, Mbawemi has several income generating projects such as their beekeeping project in Mzenga where not only the honey is sold to create income for the women but also to create product out of by the wax such as candles and soap. Mbawemi educates and assists these women to become more independent and economically sustainable by providing them with a way to generate a small income.

Mbawemi also offers programs focused on:

Environmental protection
HIV/AIDS prevention and care project
Public health
Talent and skills development

There is an ongoing challenge for financial support and materials to support the running of the different projects. If any volunteers can contribute with any of the following items this would be highly appreciated;

Child care centre playing materials and educational games
Sports equipment such as balls, skipping ropes, etc.
Food donations for families in need
Clothing for children and adults
Learning books

Assisting with teaching at the child care centre.
Monitoring and offering technical support to women with small businesses.
Teaching extracurricular lessons to primary and secondary school students.
