Malawi Women’s Sewing Project

African Enterprise works with at risk women in Malawi, through programs that give them marketable skills while also teaching them the Gospel. In Malawi, what started as a small group meeting in someone’s garage, has blossomed into a twice-a-year project that trains 40 women in tailoring.

AE offers a variety of skills training programs including: tailoring, fabric printing, soap making, and pastries. Each are lucrative markets and will provide women with a source of income. They are also taught basic business and life skills.

The heart behind this project is to display the love of God through not just word, but deed. The project serves vulnerable women, that is, prostitutes, widows, domestic abuse survivors, and women coming from very poor families who cannot make ends meet. They live together for six months to learn how to design and tailor clothes, and also gain life skills, on topics such as hygiene, cooking skills, and home economics. AE also provides counseling, and access to medical treatment as required. At the end of the course they are each given a sewing machine, to help jumpstart their business.
