Cyclone Ana created widespread devastation in Malawi, particularly to the students of the Reap What You Sew School. The storm resulted in devastation to homes, loss of life, and chaos from which the country is still recovering.

Please consider donating to our ongoing relief efforts as we assist these families who are in desperate need of help. 

Project Malonda Story

We exist to provide a place of love, support, encouragement & hope to women in need.

Project Malonda, meaning “Project Trade” in Chichewa (the indigenous language of Malawi, Africa), is a trade school project designed for lower class women in impoverished countries. These trade schools will teach skills in tailoring and supply graduating students with the necessary skills they will need to become independent businesswomen. The schools are six months in length, and only the lowest women on the socioeconomic ladder of the host country are enrolled. Project Malonda now sponsors the first of these schools in Malawi, Africa, the “Reap What You Sew School for Women,” where 85 % of the graduates are running their own successful businesses, with current requests for similar schools in Mozambique, South Africa, Zimbabwe, India, and the Philippines. It is the goal of Project Malonda to be the catalyst that brings not only these women and their families out from under the terrible grip of poverty, but also entire nations. We believe that by educating these women and empowering them as independent businesswomen, change will come to these countries One Woman, One Business at a Time.

One woman a world away. Women struggling to feed their families in one of the poorest countries on the planet. And a God who intervenes.

Together, we can further our cause through ministering to women all over the world.

The Vision

Project Malonda is a dedicated training program to teach widows and underprivileged women the sewing trade with educators, tools, materials, and supplies necessary to become successful businesswomen.

The Program

Students attend a six-month program focused on tailoring. Participants will receive special one-on-one time with a seamstress and have practice time in the afternoons. They receive a sewing machine and supplies and bookkeeping training by the end of the program.
