Malaika4wc NPO

Is a non-profit organization founded in aug 2020 by Marijke, Marc & Jan.
Our aim is: to empower vulnerable women and through them their children and help them on their way to a better life. In Kampala, for example, many vulnerable women live together with their children in appalling conditions.
We want to change this by e.g. setting up a sewing workshop. Through the "Teach the teacher" formula we want to teach women how to sew, crochet and knit so that they can eventually work as independent seamstresses. By doing so we give women the opportunity to generate their own income.
In this way we also support their children. By having their own income, they can better feed their children and send them to school.

The (fortunately changeable) flights for next year are booked and the people of Kapcdam are waiting impatiently for our arrival. We hope to be able to start our three projects sometime in the first quarter and already partially roll them out but are anxiously waiting to see if the Covid epidemic will not upset our plans.

How can you help the vulnarable women?

You can help our vulnerable women in several ways. First and foremost by giving them work.

For example, by donating one or more birth sets to a vulnerable woman in Nsambya or Kampala, you support at least 2 women: you donate something to the young mother and her child and you create work for another vulnerable woman who works in our sewing workshop. Isn't that wonderful!

Give them drinkable water

20 million Ugandans do not have access to safe drinking water.
They drink dirty water from ditches and heavily polluted wells which is the No. 2 cause of death for children under 5.

Sprouts for water, a Ugandan company, developed a ceramic filter that filters 99.99% of all impurities including bacteria from the water. For barely 25 euros, up to 6 people have access to clean water for 2 years.

Donate a water filter through our gift shop so that they too can enjoy clean water. Please do!

Or buy something from the gift shop

Where you will find plenty of gifts for him, for her, for the kids or the baby. Everything is homemade with love by Malaika & Co.
The proceeds of this sewing work will go directly towards our sewing workshop.
If you don't live too far from Temse or Wilrijk, you can come and pick it up or we will bring it to your door for a small additional fee. If you live further away, we can send your order at an additional cost via Bpost.

Thank you in advance for your order.

To strengthen our team, we are always looking for volunteers who can handle a sewing machine. Volunteers with strong language skills who can write or improve texts in both Dutch and English are also very welcome.

Are you someone with some free time now and then?
Are you handy with a needle, scissors, sewing machine, Dutch and/or English?
