Please join us as we discuss period poverty with Executive Director, James Gondwe of the Centre For Youth & Development in Mzuzu, Malawi.

Centre for Youth and Development is a local development non-governmental organization with an innovative people-led approach to delivering United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Children, Youth and Women are the main focus of their development work, and all of their interventions are anchored and centred on sectors of Education, Health and Economic Empowerment, empowering individuals so they build opportunities and responsibilities to develop societies in which others have the right to do better.

Women in rural Malawi often face challenges and cultural taboos around menstruation that create inequity in education, work and other opportunities. AFCA has partnered with James and the Centre For Youth & Development in order to provide period kits, so girls may continue attending school.
