Our Work

One-third of women in Malawi have experienced physical violence by the age of 15. In 2015, 16% of women experienced physical violence which was mostly perpetrated by a current husband or partner.While 24% of women who have not been married experience violence from brothers or sisters. The UNFPA reports that violence against women and girls is a consequence and cause of HIV and AIDS globally. Malawi is no different. The Country has a long road to eradication of HIV and AIDS despite the target of 2030 as the year for ending HIV and AIDS in the Country.

Purple Innovation is a women-led a not-for-profit organization that was registered as a non-profit organization in Malawi in 2016. The focus of Purple Innovation is on promoting a safe and empowering Malawi for women and is implementing women empowerment and protection programmes in Northern Malawi Districts of NkhataBay and Mzimba Districts. Leveraging on innovative scalable open source technology is one of the cornerstones for accelerating the attainment of our Vision.
