Supported by USAID, WEAVE (Women Empowered-to-Fight Aids and Violence Everywhere) mobilized more than 8000 women, particularly those impacted by HIV, in three constituencies in Mpika District and organized them into 412 groups. In less than three years, these rural women, who were solely dependent on their husbands for support, collectively raised nearly 156 million Zambian kwacha or the equivalent of $31,000. The groups have since quintupled their savings, grown their numbers and continue to accrue and generate income from small business loans given to members who have developed entrepreneurial agency thanks to the program.
As part of The USDA the McGovern-Dole Food For Education and Child Nutrition programs in Cameroon and Malawi, Nascent has constructed more than 42+ boreholes, standpipes, and handwashing stations located on primary school grounds, to serve schools and communities. Available potable water drastically reduces incidences of sanitation modulated diseases, such as dysentery. Readily available clean drinking water -which eliminates drinking from polluted open streams- paired with training on handwashing, and the proximity of handwashing stations and Nascent built sanitary toilets is putting in place a model for long term health and wellbeing in schoolchildren and their broader under-served communities.
