Transforming the Future for Children in Mchinji The TiKuMA Project

We are excited to announce the official approval of the TiKuMA Project (Tikwaniritse ndi Kuteteza Maufulu A Ana) by the District Executive Committee (DEC) in Mchinji. This groundbreaking project, funded by Save the Children Malawi, is a part of the Norad Framework Agreement 2024-2028, focusing on transforming the future for and with children.

The TiKuMA Project aims to address critical issues affecting children in Malawi, including high rates of child marriage, sexual and gender-based violence, and limited access to quality education. Despite the government’s ratification of various conventions and charters on children’s rights, there remains a significant gap in fulfilling these rights, particularly for girls and children with disabilities.

Key objectives of the TiKuMA Project include

  • Ensuring Children’s Rights: Strengthening community and government systems to protect children’s rights and fulfill their needs.
  • Combating Violence: Addressing and reducing violence against children, including child marriage and gender-based violence.
  • Improving Education: Enhancing access to and quality education, particularly for children with disabilities and those in underserved areas.
  • Empowering Adolescents: Providing adolescents with the knowledge, skills, and support needed to make informed decisions about their lives and health.

The project will be implemented in 62 primary schools across five educational zones in Mchinji district, targeting both in-school and out-of-school children and adolescents. GAYO will play a crucial role in delivering education interventions and supporting child rights governance.

We are committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and enabling environment for children, empowering them to succeed and reach their full potential. As we embark on this journey, we invite you to join us in making a lasting impact in our communities. Together, we can innovate, advance, and cultivate a brighter future for our children.
