Women can build a strong foundation through education

Women are tough players when it comes to the battlefield of success. When a woman makes up her mind towards something, there is no one who can stop her. More precisely, she can be considered “a man in a dress”. Women seeking education not only build a strong foundation for their present life but also for their future. In Malawi, pockets of gender injustice still prevail and most girls are not able to get secondary education as compared to boys. As a result of this inequality, girls have fewer chances of prosperity in life. Some of the driving factors to lack of quality girls education are early marriages, teen pregnancies, lack of sanitary kits and poverty.

This is the reason why women are not able to compete in life and are unable to transform their skills into success. Sadly, only 67% of women are literate according to MICS 2006.Urunji Child-Care Trust is making effort to boost the literacy and economic levels of women in selected districts of Malawi. In Nathenje, Lilongwe, the Trust is running a microfinance project targeting 60 women. These women have been given soft loans to start small and medium enterprise programmes (SME). The loans will help the women to increase their income thereby improving their standards of living in Malawi. This is an effective strategy that will not only change the current status of women but also give hope to the entire communities.

The business training will help the women to harness their business skills, gain advanced knowledge on modern-day microfinance and positively contribute to building the economy of the country. The women will be able to turn their creative ideas into actions that have a positive impact on the economy of Malawi. Instead of just sitting and waiting for help, the women can venture into a wide range of small business like farming, arts and craft, fabric making, catering and others. Get involved now.

We are running a campaign on Facebook…

We have seen our programmes expand dramatically this year. We also saw so many partnerships being made. That's the great news about charity work in Urunji Child-Care Trust.

As we bring more hope to more children in Malawi, we need additional funds for better results. Click Here to learn more about this campaign and how you can donate towards the feeding programme.
