Where We Work

Malawi

In Malawi, improving the quality of education for girls in primary school is a main focus of our programming in Nsanje district, and we work to increase community involvement in education as well as to promote gender equality by addressing the issue of gender-based violence in schools. In Nkhotakota district, our program on reproductive health for women is working to reduce maternal mortality by improving access to quality health care services. Concern has long played a leading role in addressing malnutrition in Malawi and we continue to do so through advocacy at the national and international levels. Our conservation agriculture training is also improving livelihoods for very poor farmers by increasing their yields.
