Challenge

Orphan hood as a result of AIDS related death cases has led to child- headed families, which has resulted into school drop-outs to go for commercial sex working as an alternative to earning their living. These people lack parental guidance and basic needs. High unemployment rate also contributes to this problem, due to lack of entrepreneurship skills and lack of friendly / affordable loans. These people have no choice but to go for commercial sex work as their source of income.

Solution

HIV prevalence is higher in women in Malawi; the project will help curb the rate of infection in line with the 3 Zeros - Zero New Infection, Zero New Prevalence and Zero New Deaths. Women empowerment is being promoted through the project because women contribute most to the development of a nation. The project addressing 3 aspects of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 1, 3 and 6, which are: Eradication of Extreme Poverty and Hunger, Promoting Gender Equality and Women Empowerment.

Long-Term Impact

The project is addressing long term deeper problems in terms of equipping the beneficiaries with entrepreneurship skills in order to sustain them whereby they will be able to create jobs for themselves, making them self-sufficient and financially independent. Solomonic Peacocks Theatre Organization will mentor them with business skills, which will make them financially independent to manage themselves, their families and be able to plan for the future.
