Davie Sato, Bwanaisa Community Malawi – Young Women for Technical Skills Development

Date grant awarded: March 29, 2019

Young Women for Technical Skills Development is an initiative created by a social scientist, Davie Sato, to social-economically empower young women at Group Village Headman (GVH) Bwanaisa in Phalombe District of Malawi. The targeted young women are primarily single mothers, many of which face financial challenges.

The project will provide technical trainings in designing and tailoring school uniforms to less privileged pupils in the community. Davie is inspired by his passion of initiating self-employment in women for economic independence as a way of contributing to sustainable social-economic development of Malawi and the world at large. Grant funds will supply core financial capacity for the implementation of the whole project, such as sewing machines.
