Video: Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response in Malawi

December 1st, 2021 | Blogs


To commemorate 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, this video interview delves into World Education’s gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and response work in Malawi through the experiences of Deliwe, senior technical case management specialist for the Bantwana Initiative’s Ana Patsogolo Activity

In this 2 part interview, Deliwe explains why it is crucial to target GBV in Malawi, and how we can eliminate it through the widespread integration of anti-GBV programs. Deliwe shares stories of successes achieved and challenges faced in her work, highlighting the importance of empowering women economically, holding men accountable for their role in ending GBV, and addressing the deep-rooted gender norms that perpetuate violence. 

“It really only takes one individual to say no, GBV has to stop, and it has to end here. Then, if an individual makes that decision, they can influence their family. Then, from the family level, we can engage the community.” -Deliwe Msiska
