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), is a trade school designed for lower class women in Malawi, Africa. This trade school will teach skills such as tailoring, cosmetology, and culinary arts, as well as supplying the students with the necessary business skills they will need to become independent businesswomen. Project Malonda will educate 10-15 students per class in each trade, and it will also house our completely benevolent school, the Reap What You Sew School for Women, a tailoring school that educates 10 students each term. The women attending Project Malonda will be required to pay for their education on a sliding scale based on their standard of living and level of available income. The RWYS School for women charges its students substantially less, around .67/month. The women enrolled in the Reap What You Sew School for Women are the most impoverished women in the area, receiving the machine they have been sewing on at the end of the term. Project Malonda will also have a fully functioning chapel and chaplains on staff to lead the women in weekly chapel, as well as to counsel and care for them as needed. It is our hope and prayer that Project Malonda will be the catalyst to bring not only these women and their families out from under the terrible grip of poverty, but also the entire nation. We believe that by educating these women, change will come to this country One Woman, One Business at a Time.

Reap What You Sew Documentary

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.
