Concern began implementing a 5-year Graduation programme in southern Malawi’s Mangochi and Nsanje Districts in January 2017. The programme embeds a graduation component within a community ‘enabling environment’.
The enabling environment component involves fostering a community-wide approach to addressing problems which affect all poor people in the community. The programme encompasses a research component, which determines the impact of the transformative gender training on the programme.
As part of the research component, Graduation households will be accompanied through an intensive 2-year programme for transforming gender attitudes and norms. Concern’s Graduation programme consists of five core components: Comprehensive Targeting, Consumption Support, Skills Training and Coaching, Savings and Financial Access, and Asset Transfer.
