Centre for Alternatives for Victimised Women and Children (Cavwoc) on Saturday handed over a K5.5 million Njereza Resource Centre to Traditional Authority (T/A) Kasisi in Chikwawa District.
Speaking during the ceremony, Cavwoc Executive Director, Joyce Phekani, said the project marked the end of the United for Body Rights Project that has been there since 2011.
The Njereza Resource Centre has a library and counselling centre for the youth.
“Although we are temporarily ending our project, but we thought the best way for the members of this community to remember our activities was to construct this facility so that the youths around this area benefit,” said Phekani.
Cavwoc Vice Board Chairperson, Kelton Bolokonya, urged the beneficiaries to look after the facility well.
“This facility will benefit a lot, therefore, it is everyone’s responsibility to take ownership so that there is no vandalism and theft of books,” said Bolokonya.
T/A Kasisi commended Cavwoc for the resource centre, which he said will change youth’s behaviour.
“Our youth have been indulging in immoral behaviour. Most of them spend their time drinking beer excessively, smoking chamba, and early marriages. So, with the coming of this facility, I hope there will be a great change,” said Kasisi
