Kusewera’s GIRL POWER Initiative, is a campaign that focuses on the girls. We call it, Mphamvu Ya Atsikana, which means “the strength of the girls” in Chichewa, and translates to us as GIRL POWER! Through this initiative, we encourage women and girls around the world to partner with us as we educate and empower girls and young women in our programs in Malawi. Africa.
We feel there are different important avenues where girls can learn to be more confident, more empowered and learn the leadership skills necessary to reach their highest potential. Sports, the arts and special girls only clinics teaching a trade, skill, business, English and public speaking are designed to do just that. We give special attention to equality as well as a better understanding of good health and hygiene. Typical pressures put on young girls and women in the villages and in their communities often hinder their growth, their education and their personal dreams. We want them to feel empowered to hope, dream and set goals for a better future. At the same time, we can also teach boys and men to respect girls and women and to recognize them as partners in any healthy society.
When women and girls gather together in support of one another, powerful changes can happen.
