Skills training for VULNERABLE WOMEN IN AFRICA
African Enterprise works with at risk women in Malawi, Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda, through programs that give them marketable skills and teach 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 across Africa 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 project is for prostitutes, widows, or women coming from very poor families where they cannot make ends meet,” says Enoch Phiri…we call them vulnerable women”
“The project is for prostitutes, widows, or women coming from very poor families where they cannot make ends meet,” says Enoch Phiri, Team Leader of AE Malawi. “We call them vulnerable women. They live together for six months to learn about hygiene, gain cooking skills, and learn to make and tailor clothes. At the end of the course they are each given a sewing machine with which to start their lives afresh.”
