Travelling Report Malawi September / Oktober 2017

Donate now

End of September I personally travelled to Malawi, together with Nina Friese, who works for our foundation since about 2 years as a volunteer.

Those were the most important goals of that journey:

  to get a better idea of the situation in Malawi and Karonga

  to survey personally the status of our projects

  to check opportunities for co-operations with other organizations.

The following issues were part of our program:

to have intense discussions with the IIWD about our projects and the achieved results, about the future challenges and the further procedure

  to participate in events on family planning and information on reproductive health. During these activities we got a detailed view and a very positive impression of the work of the IIWD. We also have seen that the people are very much interested in our projects.

  to visit the Karonga District Hospital. During this visit we could personally see the critical situation of the public health care in Karonga

to visit the St. Mary´s Primary Girls School, where we support the installation of a youth center on questions about reproductive health

  to talk to the teachers of the school about this project. We are informed that the drop-out rate, i.e. the number of girls leaving the school because of early pregnancy, is starting to decrease

  to participate in an event at the Cultural & Museum Center Karonga, which informs about the youth center and the related goals. We estimate the number of participants to about 3.000

to meet other organizations, which are working on similar projects in Malawi, to exchange experiences and to discuss about opportunities of a future cooperation

  to participate in a reception of the German Embassy on the occasion of the festivities for the German reunification. We have the opportunity to talk personally to German Ambassador and to inform him about the objectives of our projects

We return home with a lot of positive impressions, but the journey also made us very thoughtful. In particular we will remember the happiness and cordiality of the people in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa.

It was a very strenuous but also a very successful journey, which has convinced us, that our support really reaches the people in Malawi. The results achieved so far encourage us to continue with our projects and to expand them - if possible - to other regions of Malawi.
