Support OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
Mothers of Africa is currently running two projects: Challenging Period Poverty and A Kindergarten for Shiyala. Both projects are based in the Chongwe District of Zambia and are being undertaken with the approval of the District Education Board Secretary and with the support of local leaders and the community.
Please consider a donation to one, or both, of these projects. Your donation will make a real difference the the girls, women and community of Chongwe.
For many women and girls, in low-resourced countries, it is a simple fact that they don't have the funds to buy the safe and hygienic sanitary products that would allow them to manage their periods with dignity.
Our new project is to provide sanitary packs to all schoolgirls of menstrual age in Chongwe District. Produced by a local sewing group, using machines donated as part of the initial Welsh Government coronavirus project grant, each pack contains five washable pods in an attractive cotton bag. That is 18,000 packs, and 90,000 towels over the next 2 years.
FOR SHIYALA SCHOOL
Following the successful 2019 project, building six new classrooms and a teachers' office at Evergreen Primary School, our new infrastructure project takes us back to Shiyala to build a kindergarten.
Working again with CAUKIN Studio, plans have been developed to provide two classrooms and a dedicated toilet for the pre-school children of this rural village community. Originally scheduled for 2020 but postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it is anticipated that we will now break ground in 2022.
