MetadataShow full item record
This study investigates the role of the Economic Empowerment of Women (EEW) project and the Church of Central African Presbyterian (C.C.A.P) of the Nkhoma Synod, in the empowering of women in Kalolo area, Lilongwe district, in the central region of Malawi. This entailed an exploration of the situation of the women in Kalolo area on the one hand, and then studied how empowerment is understood by the people involved in the EEW project on the other hand. In order to get the required information, I interviewed representatives of three groups: the women, the church representatives and the EEW representatives. The material of these interviews was supported by participant observation and some documents from the church and the EEW projects. The study will employ gender theories and empowerment theory to analyse the data.
