Significant change stories from Liu Lathu, the Mwananchi Programme in Malawi 

Presents stories of change from each of the grant partners of the Mwananchi programme in Malawi, Liu Lathu.

The Liu Lathu domestic violence project initiated by Women Hope for Change addresses violence inflicted by spouses or partners in the context of matrimonial or cohabiting relationships. The project has been focusing on domestic violence as well as on rules and procedures for getting help from the police and the courts as well as advocating on laws that impinge on women’s rights. The thrust of the initiative has been sensitizing communities and foster a clear understanding of violence against women issues, while training key actors in the justice systems at district level to ensure the issues are well understood and that proper procedures are followed in the delivery of justice to women.
