NABW resurrects to empower Malawi women economically

National Organisation of business Women (Nabw) has resurrected and rebranded  after being dormant for years.

National Chairperson of the Organisation, Towera Jalakasi said within the years the organisation lost track of its mandate and focused on different aspects of life rather than promoting lives of women.

She said it was for this reason the members decided to rebrand the organisation by bringing in new ideas like launching the NABW Business Strategy (2014-17) that will act as a guide line to lead the group to success.

According to Jalakasi, they have decided to hold a Business Expo to lay as foundation to the launch of their business strategy.

“The main thing for us is to launch the business strategy for NABW but we felt we cannot do it silently so we decided to organise a business expo that will bring a number of business from Malawi and a wide number of stakeholders so that they are able to understand our strategy but also to interact and provide a platform for businesses,” she said.

Jalakasi indicated that during the business expo, there will be 150 organisations that are expected to showcase their products and they have also planned a lot of activities like workshops, fashion shows and competitions.

She further added that they have different companies that will present different opportunities and profiles to about 10,000 women that are expected to patronize the business expo.

Currently NABW has 400 paid up members some of whom are also expected to showcase their products during the business expo from 25-27 September at the Golden Peacock.

The National Chair expressed optimism that the members will use the business expo to generate business ideas or even identify businesses they can invest in.

“We are also expecting our members to interact with themselves, because we have members from the South, North and Centre. So these members will have an opportunity for the first time to come together and interact and share knowledge and experiences,” said Jalakasi.

She said the business strategy is very important as it is the main guide line to the success of the organisation as this will help to have focused efforts and resources that will bring people together and direct them.

NABW started in 1990 with the mission of helping empower and promote business women in the country.
