The World Communion of Reformed Churches and the women presidents of regional Swiss Reformed churches awarded Mulemwa the Sylvia Michel Prize, which is named for the first woman to be elected president of a Swiss regional church.
"I am humbled," Mulemwa told a crowd gathered at the Reformed Church in Murten, for a celebratory service. "It is too much."
Mulemwa created the Liyoyelo Batik Centre in Senanga, Zambia. The project provides training in income generating skills such as making batik and candles, and raising fruit and vegetables.
Mulemwa works with a network of women called the Anamoyo who are known for their community service in the name of the church.--ENI
