Malawi / Dedza Region / Mtakataka Village (2019)
» Completed Projects
The Republic of Malawi is located in the southeastern part of the African continent and is one of the poorest countries in the world. The problem of access to clean water, which is one of the main problems of the African continent, is seen as a more essential need in Malawi and its rural areas. Malawi is one of the top 5 countries in the world ranking where child marriages are common, and more than half of the girl population is forced into early marriage. Moreover, accessibility to education is low due to insufficient economic and social conditions, especially in rural areas, as well as the limited number of buildings that can handle the existing student capacity.
Women and girls are often subjected to sexual and physical violence, but unfortunately have to live with violence due to the lack of shelters. In collaboration with Region councilor Gift Balaka and the Chief of the Dedza District Theresa Kachindamato, whose work is respectful against child marriages and sexual violence;
The Construction of the Mtakataka Village School has started and is in progress.
