SheRose was founded in 2016 by Kheliwe Njolinjo.

"Growing up, I was always interested in human rights and social justice. In 2008 while visiting Malawi, I was exposed to the grave poverty as well as the injustice many individuals face on a daily basis; this impelled me to want to join the cause for eradicating poverty and assisting in creating better communities within Malawi.

But what could I do? ​


Thus began my long journey of discovering where and how I could best help. Fast forward 8 years, a law degree and some life experiences later had helped me to discover that my passion in gender equality, education and children's rights. My research on Malawi exposed the prevalence of child marriages and violence against girls, a cause which compelled me to get involved, it was from this that SheRose was born! 

It is my passion and desire to help young girls realise their potential and dreams. I believe that all of us have something to offer to the world, and that our birth circumstances should not be the limitation that hinders the world from experiencing our unique contributions. With this organisation, I want to assist those who were unfortunately born in disadvantaged conditions or within countries where the systems are structured in a way that often oppresses the potential of these women. If I can help even just one girl to elevate her life and have access to opportunities that she would not have otherwise had, I will be truly satisfied."

I want and hope girls like my niece can navigate through a world that is designed for them, and one that wants to see them thrive in every way."

Bernadetta Kuchonde
Programme Officer 

Growing up, there were few organisations like SheRose dedicated to the vital work that we do now. It often felt like every girl was left to fend for herself with scarce Information on protecting themselves. 


Reflecting on my own experience as a once teen mom fuels my passion, especially when I consider the girl child from Thyolo, who lacks mentors and access to vital information. I am determined to spare other girls the hardships of child marriages and early pregnancy.
