In Malawian culture, single mothers are looked down upon and are often outcasts in society. It is also very difficult for them to earn enough to support their family and pay their children’s school fees. The Nyakambiris are working to help these women gain respect and earn money for their children’s schooling through a Freezit making business. As part of this project, the Nyakambiris would also like to help send some of these single mothers back to school to earn a degree.
• A Freezit (very much like our popsicles) making machine $148
• 15 Cooler Boxes $341
• School fees $159/single mother/year of school (they would like to sponsor two single mothers per year) = $318
