MISSION CAPSULE: PWS&D building sustainable livelihoods program in Malawi supports orphans and vulnerable children, women and people living with HIV and AIDS to overcome poverty and build hopeful futures. One way this is accomplished is through self-help groups. Last year, 22 groups were established, enabling vulnerable women to save and borrow loans to better care for their families. With her first loan, one woman transformed her life. With her savings, she opened a small grocery stall. Today, she is earning enough to support herself, buy food and hygiene supplies for her family and pay her son’s college tuition. “I am really grateful to this project. It is there to empower us, “ she says. “We are now singing songs of joy.”
