Our work with youth in Malawi

Our work with youth in Malawi

04 August 2015

Concern’s programmes for young people in Malawi have a strong reputation for innovation and for strong technical leadership in areas of health, nutrition, livelihoods and gender-based violence. 

Our strategic plan for tackling poverty in Malawi strongly emphasises meeting the needs of youth. A core focus is around the sexual and reproductive needs of young people, including prevention of, and response to, gender-based violence. Over the past several years, we have developed programmes that promote positive behaviour among adolescents, including SKILLZ, a soccer camp that educates and inspires young people in the fight against HIV.

Other approaches include the support of education services, interactive theatre performances and the support of men’s groups which promote alternative notions of power and masculinity.
