Learning and resources on gender in education
Paving the Way for Change
How protect our youth clubs are helping students challenge norms and confront school-related GBV
To address high rates of SRGBV in Malawi, the Bantwana Initiative of World Education, Inc. (WEI/Bantwana) through EngenderHealth’s Essential Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Services and Prevention Project, funded by the US Department of State Secretariat for Global Women’s Initiatives (S/GWI) launched ‘Protect Our Youth’ (POY) clubs in 43 community day secondary schools in Blantyre, Chiradzulu, Kasungu and Mzimba districts. The clubs worked to build young people’s confidence, capabilities and assets. This qualitative assessment analyses this strategy and includes learning, findings and considerations for similar interventions in the future.
