Justice Lead – Lilongwe, Malawi
Malawi Violence Against Women and Girls Prevention and Response Programme – Tithetse Nkhanza
The Malawi Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Prevention and Response Programme is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and delivered by a consortium of Tetra Tech International Development (formerly Coffey International Development, and registered in Malawi as Coffey International), Social Development Direct and Plan International. The programme runs from November 2018 to January 2025, split into an initial inception period (November 2018 to March 2019), and then a two phase implementation period. The first phase of implementation (from April 2019 to November 2022) will see the programme test intervention pilots for potential scale-up in Phase 2.
The Programme’s objective is to reduce the prevalence of violence against women and girls and improve the justice system for women and girls living with violence in Malawi. It will do this by achieving the following Outcomes:
The programme will achieve these outcomes working through the following Outputs:
Across all outputs, the programme will ensure adherence to the principles of gender transformation, engaging men and boys, ensuring no-one is left behind and sustainability. Programme implementation is guided by the principles and approach of problem-driven iterative adaptation (PDIA). The programme will ensure interventions are guided by the operating environment, and that the programme adapts as the context changes or learning produces evidence to guide a more effective response. Taking a politically savvy and contextually aware approach will be critical to this.
The programme will work at the national level in Malawi, and the district level in, initially, three districts: Lilongwe (urban and peri urban), Karonga and Mangochi, in 12 targeted Traditional Authorities (4 Traditional Authorities per district). Based on learnings in Phase One, the programme will likely scale up to other districts and areas in Phase Two.
The programme has developed six intervention areas that feed directly into the five outputs. These are:
The Justice Lead leads on Output 2 and Output 3 and is responsible for delivering the technical strategy in these Outputs, working in close collaboration with the International Justice Advisor, Technical Legal Adviser, VAWG Lead, Community Engagement Lead and Deputy Team Leader.
