We are kicking of Winter here in Malawi by launching our second Group of 2019, Grace Group.
Grace Group is kicking off in June 2019, in partnership with Grace Foundation.
Come get to know Grace Foundation a little more!
Grace Foundation is a Malawian Non-profit Organization. Their vision is to create a safe and supportive community for orphans and vulnerable children, the elderly, girls and women. Grace Foundation hosts a community based children’s outreach program in area 38, Lilongwe. On a day-to-day basis, you can find the leadership at Grace Foundation teaching children in their after- school tutoring classes, dishing up lunch in their feeding program, and giving much needed support and relief to the families they serve.
Grace Foundation desires to strengthen families in their area through economic empowerment. They want to see the families they serve be financially stable so that they can care effectively for their children and are also able to pay for school fees and medical bills. This is where the partnership with Ufulu Groups comes in to play. Our hope is through this partnership, many families will become financially stable and able to provide for their families what Grace Foundation is currently providing. This will result in families in the community being empowered.
Ufulu Groups has enrolled 8 vulnerable guardians from the Grace Foundation program along with their 12 children. This all Woman Group will be learning the ins and outs of the Hair and Make-up Industry. Not only will the women learn different skills of how to style hair and apply make-up, but they’ll be learning how to take those skills and launch them into a business to care for and provide for their families. As always with our Groups, the women will also be participating in weekly Trauma Groups and learning how to find hope and healing through a relationship with Jesus and therapeutic work. An on-site day care will be established to care for the children while their mamas are in class all day.
