Summary ""When you educate a girl, you educate a nation --Malawian saying. The women of Malawi, like many other women in developing countries, struggle to find their way out of poverty and build a better life for themselves and their families. Weaving a Malawi Sunrise tells the story of Memory Chazeza's quest to get an education and to build a school for young women. Roberta Laurie was one of many who helped Memory realize her vision of seeing young girls become strong and independent women who could care for themselves and their future families. During her time in Malawi, Laurie met several other women, each of whom had a story of her own. Laurie interweaves these accounts with well-researched information about the country's underlying social and political context. Readers interested in Africa, global affairs, women's studies, development, and international education will give high marks to Weaving a Malawi Sunrise"-- Provided by publisher
