Project Launch: 6/21/18

Dzaleka is a multicultural community where people fled from their home countries. Most of refugees and asylum seekers come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, Somalia, and Ethiopia. In Malawi, the law does not allow refugees to apply for a job. Even though some refugees and asylum seekers run small businesses or farm, most of the community members rely on the humanitarian assistance provided by the UNHCR. This project aims to empower ten single-mothers and ten orphans to become more self-reliant through sewing activities.
