Giving children hope through Children’s Corners

Chikondi Children’s Corner is a colourful and vibrant Children’s Corner in Mchinji District. It has a colourful playground, with jungle-jims and swings and a building that doubles as community-based childcare centre during the week. The staff are committed, and the local community is engaged. The volunteers have created homemade educational materials, including posters made from recycled sacks, which cover the walls.

Protecting children from violence

I started working as a child protection officer at UNICEF Malawi in February 2019. A massive flood that displaced 87,000 people occurred just after 3 weeks of my arrival. I was deployed to the affected areas in the southern part of Malawi twice after the floods. The first time was immediately after the flood for assessment, and the other for the response from 25th April to 9th May.
