Partnership with Voices Awake!

By Samuel Malasa Banda

Towards the end of the year 2018, we helped birth the newest Urban Promise International ministry, Voices Awake! Headed by the versatile Vanessa Mwangala, Voices Awake works alongside girls and women with an aim of promoting positive values, abuse awareness, healthy sexual attitudes, and leadership development.

Currently, Voices Awake is on track in the construction of its house which upon completion, it will provide lodging for more than 20 girls in rotation including students, interns, and employees. Further, the house will have a library and computer room for the girls.  The organization is also helping teen mothers who dropped out of school by mentoring them in entrepreneurial ideas and for those with interest; they are being helped to return to school.

The effort to improve lives of people in Salima has extended to paying tuition fees for six girls at Cornerstone Christian High School and also sponsoring several boys and girls from Salima and other districts who are in need of tuition, food, clothing and other basic necessities.

According to Voices Awake Director, Miss V, her organization also holds Mentorship sessions every Friday at Cornerstone Christian High School, attended by 76 girls who are instructed in various skills and have a chance to interact with role models.

As Cornerstone Ministries Malawi, we are happy to be an incubator for other new ministries like Voices Awake who have come to Salima to help transform and empower girls and youths for Christ.
