Actual news on our Project in Mzimba

Since the end of 2018, we have been supporting the cooperation project with PLAN International "Education on reproductive and sexual health for children and adolescents" in Mzimba in northern Malawi. Up to now, we have been able to provide a total amount of 65,000 euros, 25,000 euros in 2020.

Once again, we would like to sincerely thank all donors who have supported this project with their donations in the past years.

In the first months of the second project year, 22,500 young people have already been addressed. The newly appointed Youth Community-Based Distribution Agents - trained young people who advise on sexual health and distribute contraceptives in the communities - have also contributed to the project's progress. They also provide information about teenage pregnancy, the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases, HIV and Covid-19. A key success factor here is that the young people meet each other at eye level and therefore have a lower inhibition threshold than, for example, when visiting the health centres.

The project has also set up youth clubs where young people can exchange ideas and receive information about sexual and reproductive health and family planning. Through education in the youth clubs, the young people can exercise their rights and make informed decisions.

The complete interim reports are available in German on our download page.


In the meantime, we received a case study from Malawi, which also reports in particular on the integration of young people with disabilities into the project activities.

For example, the local youth club sometimes meets at the home of 23-year-old Dina, who cannot walk due to a physical disability. This way, she does not have to take the long way to the health centre.

"Dina is one of the young people who now receives information on sexual and reproductive health. She requests youth-friendly health services from the health centre staff and the health workers who come to the communities. We need to enable more young people with disabilities to participate in the youth clubs," says a health worker at the Mkoma Health Centre.
