Through Civil Society for Rural Development, We Effect is promoting interventions that address structural causes of poverty.
We Effect Country Representative, Sanne Chipeta, Thursday said through the four-year –programme, which runs from 2018-2022, would strengthen the livelihoods of vulnerable people and fight against injustice.
“We want to strengthen institutions that can work towards improving people’s livelihoods and rights. But the ultimate results are to see people’s lives improve. We need strong institutions that can fight for the rights of the local population, particularly smallholder farmers and men and women living in poverty,” she said
The implementing partners include Farmers Union of Malawi, Malawi Milk Producers Association, Women Legal Resources Centre (Wolrec) and Malawi Union of Savings and Credit Associations.
Wolrec Director, Maggie Kathewera-Banda, said the programme is significant as it will address the problems people face.
“Every partner organisation has a role to play and, as such, we are looking forward to having a successful programme to improve people’s lives,” she said
Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development Principal Secretary, Kiswel Dakamau, said the programme would complement the government efforts to provide developmental needs to vulnerable people.
The programme is supported by the government of Sweden through its development agency, Sida.
