From Beneficiary to Agent of Change

Fanny stands confidently in front of a small crowd while demonstrating how to properly breastfeed a child. She holds her son in her arms and explains the importance of direct eye-contact and exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months of a child’s life. As a member of the Chipando village care group in Nkhotakota District, Fanny knows the importance of proper nutrition for herself and her family. Why? Because just one year ago, Fanny was the mother of an underweight child.

Girls Uniting to Bring Awareness on Issues they Face

As a way of empowering girls to be effective advocates for girls’ education issues, the DfID funded, Keeping Girls in School (KGIS) project plans to implement school based girls’ advocacy weekends in all its 10 implementing districts in Malawi.

The activities are aimed at providing a platform for girls to share issues that they face and to build their capacity as champions and advocates who can effectively bring out their issues to duty bearers – actors who have a responsibility and obligation to realise the rights of the girls.
