ON GOING PROJECTS
The following are the currently running project activities at NAWOLG
1. SHE LEADS: TOGETHER WE CAN END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS
This looks at interventions against Gender Based Violence (Sexual Gender Based Violence and Harmful practices) with support from WPHF, SPOTLIGHT INITIATIVE and UNWOMEN
2. SHE LEADS: ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT AND IMPROVING LIVELIHOOD OF WOMEN
We trained 188 young women (18 to 35 years old) in Entrepreneurship to promote economic growth to address social problems. These young women formed clubs which currently have 543 young women members to ensure sustainability. The clubs offer young women the motivation to start business alone or with others and do other group activities.
16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM – 2021
Orange Malawi: End Violence Against Women and Girls, Act Now! The NAWOLG team took part in the 2021 16 days of activism campaign as part of the National Task Force (lead by the Ministry of Gender), Lilongwe Diistrict Council Task Force, Blantyre District Council Task Force and Kasungu District Council Task Force. We took part in six awareness raising marches and six community awareness raising meetings.
16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM – 2020
We conducted an intense 16 day digital campaign in probably the most challenging year of COVID-19. A spike rise in sexual harassment cases in Malawi saw many devastating gross injustices, physical harm and mental trauma against women and children. A collective effort was our strategy during the 16 days of Activism by partnering with influencers and other public figures to stand against rape and impunity.
