Currently, Plan International Malawi is conducting a Girls Get Equal campaign with an aim of empowering girls to actively participate in matters of development as equal partners with boys and everyone else. This campaign is in support with the issue of ensuring that girls and children are safe online free from all forms of online abuse, as raised by the Director of Chair Affairs, Mr. McknightKalanda. We also encourage everyone facing any form of abuse to not hesitate to report to authorities for their action.   Additionally, Plan International Malawi works together with the Ministry of Education to encourage girl education across all levels of education. The organization has worked hand in hand with the ministry in improving the outlook of the school structures in Malawi, especially looking into Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM), constructing girl’s hostels and building capacities of teachers to appreciate the important of girl education.   Plan International Malawi appreciates the Ministry of Education for the support it has rendered and continues to render in pursuit of its goals
