Mayamiko Trust is a UK based charity that is committed to helping to lift people out of poverty by providing education, skills training, nutrition and sanitation and promoting ethical trade practices.
The Mayamiko Trust is currently working with women in Malawi. The Mayamiko Cotton Project is an initiative developed in cooperation with local partners that provides local Malawian women with training in sewing and tailoring. Most of these women are affected by HIV or are careers of HIV orphans. Through this project they are able to gain a recognized qualification to earn a decent living.
Earlier last week, the Mayamiko Trust launched an online boutique featuring a line of ethically produced natural and recycled clothing and accessories. Visit http://www.mayamiko.com to learn more.
