About the Artists

Mwayiwathu Group: Malawi

The Mwayiwathu HIV Support Group, based in Malawi, is comprised of 15 members, primarily women, who have been afflicted by AIDS (either personally or within their family). Just over one third of the women are widows who have lost their husbands to the virus. Widowhood, in Malawi, often leaves women economically disempowered and socially excluded. Mwayiwathu creates opportunities for change. The women in this group use their wages to send their kids to school, pay for transportation to receive their ARVs from the hospital, make home improvements and invest in side-business ventures.
