One Day’s Wages is partnering with Zoe Empowers to equip orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi with tools and training to overcome life threatening poverty and become fully self-sufficient.
YOUTH-LED HOUSEHOLDS WITH STEADY STREAMS OF INCOME
FAMILY MEMBERS WITH FINANCIAL & FOOD SECURITY
PERCENTAGE OF YOUTH WHO HAVE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS
Many believe the greatest humanitarian crisis of our age is the 200 million orphans living and dying in extreme poverty globally. Malawi is one of the world’s most economically challenged countries with half the population living below the poverty line, 25% living in extreme poverty, and 37% of children under age five experiencing growth stunting due to malnutrition. Orphaned children are especially vulnerable to extreme poverty, food insecurity and exploitation.
ODW + ZOE EMPOWERS
One Day’s Wages is partnering with Zoe Empowers to support orphaned and vulnerable Malawian youth who are heads of household and financially responsible for their younger siblings. During this third year of our partnership, the youth (ages 12-20) will continue to participate in empowerment groups that offer access to savings and loans, and will secure a steady source of income through a small business or income-generating activity. Children will graduate from the program with diverse streams of revenue to support their families, financial independence, and lasting bonds with a supportive group of peers.
Join us in supporting orphaned and vulnerable Malawian children! 100% of your donation (minus credit card processing fees) goes to the Zoe Empowers project. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by One Day’s Wages! Zoe Empowers’ goal is to raise $22,500 which when matched by ODW will total a $51,000 grant!
If you prefer to make your donation by check (and avoid credit card processing fees!), please make your check payable to One Day’s Wages, write “Zoe Empowers” in the memo line, and mail it to One Day’s Wages, P.O. Box 17575 Seattle, WA 98127.
