About Pride Initiative
Pride Initiative seeks to promote and fight for quality education and economic empowerment for girls and women in Malawi and Africa.
“Empowering Girls and Women to Change Nations!”
We are currently having the following projects
The Pride Children’s Home Project focuses on removing Children aged between 3 to 18 years from the streets. Many Street children do exhibit behavioral problems, aggression and substance abuse issues, but these are coping mechanisms of children who are in a great deal of psychological pain because Street Children are traumatized children, abandoned, orphaned, chronically neglected, physically, sexually and mentally abused children, children who are exploited by others to beg for commercial exploitation and other things.
This is a skills development project where we recruit girls and women especially in rural areas who are trained in reusable sanitary pads making for personal use and for selling. Through this project we impart skills on these ladies to help support their daily livelihoods. These skills training are done for 6 months after which they are given certificates of completion and starter packs to start their own pad making business. These starter packs include; 1sewing machine, embroidery, 1 scissor and 5metres clothes.
We offer scholarships to hardworking needy girls in public schools as a way of helping them achieve their dreams. These scholarships are provided after a rigorous selection process which is overseen by the District Education Managers (DEM) to assure quality control.
This a fund specially designed to help single mothers and less privileged mothers in business management and funding. These mothers are given loans based on their business proposals which are design with the help of Pride Initiative Officers after three weeks of rigorous business and financial management training. These loans are gives at a minimal interest rate of 6% per annum. The aim of this fund is to help women to be economically independent and also to help in educating their children.
