Learning for independence
Taste of Malawi is a young tailoring project in the warm heart of Africa, supporting local women on their way to independence. They receive a tailoring training and business workshops, enabling them to start their own tailoring business. Furthermore, the project offers them a broad network, which allows them to meet and connect with women, who are in the same situation. Hence, it is not only an educational institution but also a home-like safe place. Taste of Malawi also keeps advising women after they have completed their training program.
In addition to the project centre in Lilongwe, Taste of Malawi consists of a international, European group of young motivated volunteers. Team Europe takes care of tasks like fund-raising, selling the products the women sew in the project, public relations and general organisational issues. Most of the team members haven't finished their studies or formation yet, so not only our tailors in Malawi learn from the project, but the volunteers in Europe learn a lot the bigger the project grows and with each new challenge it faces.

She is a bespoke tailor and fashion designer, is experienced in costume making and now is in further training for her master craftsman's diploma.
