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.

What We Do
Together we can can help change women’s lives.
Women are leaders of their communities. They bear and raise children, care for their home and work outside of the home to provide for their families. In developing countries, resources and education are limited to women. That’s where the Reap What You Sew Project comes in. Reap What you Sew gives women practical help through a sewing trade education while providing a place of love, support, encouragement, and hope.

Every six months, beginning in January of each year, 10 women are chosen to attend the Reap What You Sew program. Every woman is given the supplies necessary along with the education to help herself and her family.
