In the course of providing tangible solutions and programs that enhance the capacity and reduces instances of violence against women and men in our surrounding communities, on the 5th of march 2022, BLAYACO conducted a consultation meeting with different stakeholders within GVH Mussa Magasa, T/A Machinjiri in Blantyre.

The sole purpose of the assessment was to explore the bottlenecks on Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) initiatives in the community. The Assessment integrated both participatory arts and Human Cantered Design approaches. The needs assessment helped in developing an understanding of the demographic data of our target audience, cultural interests, organization structures and other contexts which helped in defining Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) issues. The overall objective was to appreciate the context of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) in Chemusa, Chirimba and Mbayani.
