A new charity has been created – Chifundo meaning Compassion – that empowers girls and women in Malawi (Central East Africa) by funding them to study, for example, on tailoring courses, teacher training and university courses. One of the ways that money is raised for training courses is by a group of about thirty women in poor suburbs of Blantyre in Malawi designing, producing and selling sustainable fashion accessories and household products both in Malawi and here in the UK. They use recycled good quality denim and cotton and mix them with Mapteo Whitex cotton or Tanzanian waxed cotton.
