  • About the event

    The Ninety Nines is a non-profit organization of International Women Pilots called the Ninety-Nines. It is the only and first organization for women pilots established in 1929 by 99 women pilots founded by Amelia Earhart. The organization currently holds over 5000 members divided into chapters and sections depending on their geographical locations from 44 countries.

    Malawi will be hosting the first African Section conference of the Ninety Nines this year 19th to 24th October 2019 and will be making history in the aviation sector in the country and continent. This is the first time ever that such a huge event of this size with only female pilots has ever taken place on the African Continent. This event will be well documented by international film crew and media. The Ninety Nines International will be celebrating 90 years and the African Section their 1st Anniversary. We will be combining these two landmark anniversary celebrations together. The opening ceremony will include Ambassadors of the countries of the girls who are attending and Ministers. The female members coming from various countries are role models in their countries and professions. We are hosting 65 female pilots from around the world. The aim of our conference is promote aviation through education and scholarships in Africa. We are reaching to the youth through STEM camps that will be held in different countries in Africa.

    Due to this prestigious event taking place in Malawi we are looking for sponsors for our conference. We are looking for at least $25,000.00 for the event.  Although Malawi does not have a massive aviation industry your participation in our event would be greatly appreciated by the African Section 99s. Our event is History In The Making on the African Continent!

    Why should you sponsor?

    This event is a historical event as it is making history on the African continent. There will be International and local media coverage and an International film crew makng a documentary, this gives sponsors a great opportuinty to be part of this event. History in the making for Africa! 

     


    Ivana Alvares

    My name is Ivana Alvares-Marshall from Malawi. I am the African Section Governor of a non-profit organization of International Women Pilots called the Ninety-Nines. It is the only and first organization for women pilots established in 1929 by 99 women pilots founded by Amelia Earhart. The organization currently holds over 5000 members divided into chapters and sections depending on their geographical locations from 44 countries.

    The need for STEM is imperative now more than ever, more so to excite interest in female students which is our main objective whilst male students will also benefit from the same. Child marriages and early child bearing are a prominent cultural practice. More than 40% of girls get married before they reach 18 years old. Prevalence of HIV/AIDS prevents girls form education. Estimated 12% of the current sexually active population live with HIV/AIDS virus in Malawi.Girls in rural Malawi do not attend school if they have their usual monthly menstruation cycle. This is gradually changing as NGO's and various charitable organisations teach the girls and youth to make reusable sanitary pads. When girls are unable to attend school they lag behind in their school curriculum, leaving them with few options and they drop out of the education system. We as the African Section 99s as part of our STEM initiative wish to change this not only in Malawi but throughout the African continent, where our members are already established. We have chosen a role model in each country who will promote STEM that way we are keeping in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of no country gets left behind, promoting gender balance, women empowerment and education. We are promoting aviation alongside the ICAO initiative of Next Generation of Aviation Professionals with the tools we hope to have like mobile simulators to provide a realistic picture of what flying is all about.
