We continue to rely on your help for our projects. Help us with your donations to support the people in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world, in these difficult times.

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.

A remarkable success

The latest interim report on our project in Mzimba also reports on an important success of this project.

The Corona pandemic is currently making it difficult for young people and adults to visit health centres to receive contraceptives. This is where the work of the youth community agents comes in: They inform their same aged fellows about sexual and reproductive health and support the provision of contraceptives. The young community agents thus play an important role in health counselling in the project communities. As a result, the number of teenage pregnancies in the project area has already been reduced: by five percent compared to other communities where the project is not active. As teenage pregnancies actually increased in other communities during the Corona pandemic - the school closures in particular are considered to be the cause - this success is remarkable.

The full German reports and case studies are available on our download page.



The actuel Corona-situation in Malawi

In April, new daily infections had dropped to 10-20 officially confirmed cases. However, since the beginning of July, as in the whole of Southern Africa, this number had risen sharply again, so that in the second half of July almost 1000 daily new infections were officially registered, a development which we have observed with concern. Since a few days, this number has been decreasing again; on 30 July, 668 new cases were still registered ( source: world o meter ).

We hope that this positive development will continue.
