Young Mothers Programme
In Malawi, 29% of adolescents age 15 to 19 have begun bearing children and as a result many women drop out of school to care for their children. For single mothers, the available resource to help them move forward with personal development and literacy is scarce. By implementing a program to empower single mothers with their education, wellbeing and entrepreneurship, it’s a sure way to achieve positive social change.
Together with Malawian NGO Empowering Young Mothers, the Foundation has continued the Young Mothers Program to equip young mothers on Likoma Island with skills and confidence to inspire their lives ahead. The women have the opportunity to refine their English in addition to learning crafts such as tailoring and entrepreneurship, giving them the skills to empower themselves through small business and to inspire others.
At the heart of the programme is the creation of a space where the woman can feel free, open, positive, included and safe to express herself, while enjoying the opportunity to work for social change.
