About The Organization

Lady Pace and Patti


Lady Pace, a 23 Year old Malawian Hip Hop artist and Business Student and Patricia DeSante a 56 year old Canadian Zen Buddhist Chaplain and Eco-fashion designer/writer have connected through their passion to create a powerful circle of Mkazi Moto, “Firewomen” who are resourced to effectively engage and direct a Malawian led conversation on contemporary gender equality and ethics. They use the tools of fashion, hiphop and sport to resource their peacemaking movement.

Lady Pace and Patti are responding to a direct request from the chief, Theresa Kachindamoto, to help her resource and expand opportunities for the girls once they graduate from secondary school.

Three things we will be doing:

1) Launching a >lgo fund me< to continue supporting female chief Kachindamoto's and her stand against childhood marriages „Help Chief Kachindamoto 2) Making Lady Pace's album >Mkazi Moto< inspired by Chief Kachindamoto available in iTunes and Spotify. All proceeds go to the Chief! 3) This Mzuzu Queen of Rap Competition to discover new female MC talents
