soap-making manufacture Malawi Lilongwe

Lilongwe Youth - Making Soap

In the Kauma district of Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, many of the youth are unemployed, uneducated, or both. Under the guidance of the community, local chiefs, and the Lilongwe Youth Organisation, the youth themselves chose the idea of establishing a soap-making business. We aim to provide the equipment, materials and training needed to establish the business in such a way that it can continue training and employing young people from year to year.
