Gender-Based Violence and Female Empowerment in Malawi

January 31st, 2019

“Unfortunately, gender-based violence remains a serious development challenge in Malawi. Women and girls in Malawi fare worse than their male counterparts on socio-economic indicators including literacy, secondary and tertiary education enrolment and completion, wage equality, political participation, and literacy. Despite their critical role in food production for their households, Malawian women have little control over land, even when it is their own.” - USAID

This is one of the key drivers for our mission, to give children the skills to grow themselves, to help help women feed themselves and their families, and to facilitate access to land. And it’s why The Tuesday Trust strongly believes in supporting girls staying longer in education.
