About the Artists

Vipambi Women's Group: Malawi

The Vipambi Women’s group is a sewing cooperative with a mission to train malawian women in business and sewing skills, enabling them to become more successful. The majority of women working at Vipambi have begun their own tailoring businesses, and many have used earnings to send their children to the university. As one woman shared, “In only 3 months I’ve done a lot. I used the money as capital for my business. It was down but now it’s up. I also used some money to send my son to Dowa College; he’s at a teacher-training program for 3 years.”
