How to Change the Story for Girls

January 28th, 2019

Despite heroines like Chief Theresa Kachindamoto, too many young girls, many only 12 or 13 years old find themselves being “married” off and are quickly pregnant. Malawi has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world. It’s starting to change. The govt. is intervening, but it needs to be addressed at village level. Girls need to feel protected, nurtured and empowered as early as possible. So it was wonderful to find this pupil poster in one of the schools we support for our TT growing project, Namachete. Here’s a powerful manifesto to start changing that story.
