As a result of our programs, Malawian women, who once thought themselves worthless, learn to collaborate to become entrepreneurs, teachers, and business owners. They develop the capacity to make a difference in their families and communities.
To accomplish our goals in Malawi, VoiceFlame focuses on linking people in one of the poorest countries in the world with people in one of the wealthiest through six key programs. One of those programs is:
Leading cross-cultural learning journeys that link women from North America with women in Malawi. It is impossible to understand an issue just by reading about it. It needs to be seen, maybe even lived, in order to comprehend it. Accordingly, VoiceFlame annually leads a team of eight women who travel to Malawi to make a difference in the world. New people and experiences stimulate them as their assumptions and beliefs are challenged and they learn to turn towards each other for support. These trips allow women from developed countries to experience first-hand the issues facing women who are living in abject poverty. Many are moved to action, either within their own communities or beyond.
