Helping girls and boys in Malawi make BRAVE life decisions. Knowing safe and healthy life choices are possible.
Since 2015 we had the simple aim to support girls in rural Malawi through accurate education about their bodies and providing monthly dignity through cloth sanitary packs.
The project works with boys to challenge in-equality and promote positive and safe school environments.
We have seen the project impact and change the lives of so many young people in Malawi. We want to make this project accessible to all young people in schools in Madziabango and Nankhumba (about 2,800 -3,000 students annually).
To do this we need 388 supporters giving £10 a month
Raising a target of £46,000
We think it is possible!

Girls in Malawi are often marginalised and discriminated against, one of the main reasons for this is poor understanding of menstruation and adolescent puberty. We want to put a stop to this crippling problem and see that every girl has the opportunity to succeed alongside their male counterparts.
Our hope is that like minded women and men jump on board with us and fight for girls and boys to have a bright and equal future in Malawi.
When girls enter puberty and start menstruating they generally drop out of school. Toilets in schools have no water or lights, sorting yourself out in these conditions is neither hygienic or easy. Girls suffer medical problems from poor hygiene and culturally periods are not spoken about with boys or girls.
Project:Brave is an annual course for girls and boys based on topics we have been teaching for the past 5 years - but in more detail, over a longer period of time. The programme will be delivered to schools each year by four trained and qualified professionals, instead of over 3-5 years with only one full time member of staff as in Project My Girl.
The teaching curriculum has been written by Malawi College of Medicine and is based on research conducted by Unicef and PLAN international.
Each year a project report will be released to our supporters.
