Alignment with Soroptimist and UN Goals
Goal 1: Soroptimist International will improve the lives and status of women and girls through education, empowerment and enabling opportunities.
The project will:
- Enhance the professional education of the women selected for the programme and provide an example to other girls and young women to follow their example. As is well established in developing nations, education of women and girls is one of the most potent forces for future security and development.
- Women and girls already play a substantial role in the Malawi culture and their development and education will be vital to the future of Malawi.
- For the Malawian women selected to undertake this further education programme, their lives and status will be enhanced through this additional professional qualifications, with the attendant development to their employment and the economic benefits that will bring to both themselves and their families, but also their contribution to helping to address some of the fundamental problems that exist in their nation.
