EMPOWERING THE WOMEN AND GIRLS OF NKHOTAKOTA, MALAWI
With a little support, and some education, the girls and women of Malawi will change their future and that of their churches, communities, and country. Consider the culture these women live in.
- The average woman has 5.7 children
- 26% of women who bear children are age 15-19
- 50% of women are married before age 18
- 40% of women report spousal or partner violence
How are girls and women empowered?
Most of those registered are members of a partnering local village church. Some participants are members of another faith. Either way, they will be visited quarterly by a trained Y-Malawi Field Officer who will evaluate needs, share the gospel, pray with, and provide other resources. This support may also include emergency food, vocational training, Bible study, nutrition and hygiene counseling, plus access to micro-finance loans and savings programs.
What is expected of me?
Each quarter you will receive an email update that will provide status updates and photos. If you choose to, you can respond electronically. Y-Malawi will also provide monthly program updates to keep you informed about overall progress being made in evangelism and development.
