World Vision has challenged its staff to ensure that they champion child protection issues in various Area Programmes (AP) to ensure that the welfare of children is protected, promoted and taken to great heights.

This comes amid news that the organization in partnership with its local stakeholders and support offices are geared at mainstreaming disability and child protection issues in line with the vision and mission of the organization.

The coincides with the strategic plan where World Vision seeks to reach out to about 5.5 million children (directly or indirectly) by 2020 in sectors of education, health, water and sanitation, among others.

According to Central Zone operations manager Rachel Kathyanga, there is need for collaborative efforts among all stakeholders so that children have a better family, place or world to live in.

Kathyanga said this on Tuesday during a week-long training workshop for zonal members from different departments that took place in Salima, one of the central region lakeshore district.

“The main aims of this training are to promote Citizen Voice and Action (CVA), to enhance Child Protection and Advocacy (CPA), and to encourage Disability Inclusion and Mainstreaming,” said Kathyanga.

She emphasized the need for the staff to learn from each other given the wealth of experience they each bring from their respective APs.

“The urgent need to move CPA from theory to practice in our different Area Programmes cannot be overemphasized,” she said.

“The community should also be empowered through advocacy until they have boldness and courage to approach World Vision with questions on the impact on the ground,” said Kathyanga, adding that this would ensure checks and balances for accountability purposes on both sides.

CVA is a tried and tested tool of ensuring project sustainability at the community level and if sustainability is achieved in all projects, the development organizations World Vision included, would make a lasting impact in the lives Malawians.

In her remarks, Lizzie Lombe, the zonal advocacy and justice for children coordinator urged participants to ensure that they document CVA related matters with timelines so as to bring out tangible, quality and timely results on the ground.

“This is also to enable the citizens hold stakeholders accountable to their commitment as they empower them to influence policy. More often than not, we leave out children in decision making,” said Lombe.

She said that children have a different view of issues that affect them and it’s critical that we incorporate their voice in all community advocacy efforts.

“As development facilitators (DF), coordinators and others, we also need to share notes with different stakeholders on what is expected of the organization and children,” she said.

Lombe emphasized that all CVA activities in the community should be aimed at ensuring maximum delivery of public services to the majority of the Malawi people.

  1. Amenewa akutsutsana ndi bible bukhu la miyambo akuti usammane mwana thyole or kut tsatsa akwapulidwe ngati walakwa kut akozedwe zosakwapulazi ndizomwe zikulimbikitsa ana kukhala osowa mkhalidwe

  2. I remember in my old good school days.Before a teacher begins any lesson there was review of the previous lesson.Anybody who failed to give correct responses was either beaten up or told to bring a bundle of reed or grass.This practises made us to work very hard.Once back from school,books and notes were perused and home workdone.This spirit grew in us and we became stars in our classes.
    Give a learner homework,comes back to school without doing it.What should you expect a teacher to do?

  3. Mpake ana akukula mopusa. Ku xool akumangolakwa. 2mch ufulu. Ife tinkakwapulidwa koma sitinkakhumudwa. Akwapulidwe basi

  4. To punish a pupil was a old slybus why teachers of tody are so busy to punish a pupil than to teach how to read & write.Dos it make sense if a pupil is failing to read and bn given the punishment of pitting the rubish bin ?

    • Ana masiku ano aise akumakula mtima koopsya kukaona kang’ono ng’ono.Ufiti too much.Siyani kuphunzitsa ufiti ana akadali aang’ono kuti asamaderere aphunzitsi.Ngati mwana akuderera mphunzitsi kodi angamve zomwe akuphunzitsa?

  5. Corporal punishment was abolished in schools,however most teachers still do practise it.The reason is that learners today are stubborn and disrespectful to their tchers as such tchers r compelled to use a rod as a corrective measure and not punitive as some observers may regard.

  6. A Mabungwe, Makolo ndiinu ambiri, don’t teach teachers hw 2 teach ur children. To me, teachers hv the right 2 collect pupils in the way they know best. Para mkubakhalira nkonde, bana wl b rude to teachers. Go a head teachers, 4 the betterment of our children’s future. Eeeee shhhhh! Msaope. NGO’s and parents r nt teachers.

  7. ineyo ndugwirizana nazo aziphunzitsi ena amakwapula Ana mowonjeza I remember ku primary ndinapita ku sukulu mutu ukuwawa phunzitsi anandikwapula paka nakomoka chifukwa choti sinayakhe funso. Pali njira zambili zolangira mwana than kumenya more over teacher there job is to teach the children not to hit them

  8. These satanic organizations are there to criple the world. Whatever the Bible said they’re opposing. They want the future generation to be a vice one. Their own psychology speaks against them,a child cannot be upright with words alone. Proverbs 29:15 – The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame. Proverbs 13:24 – He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. Proverbs 23:13-14 – Withhold not correction from the child: for [if] thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Proverbs 22:15 – Foolishness [is] bound in the heart of a child; [but] the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. They are brainwashing the world and people think it’s right because they see no problem and sinister in this diabolical act. God’s children wake up from this slumber and do what God recommended. These things are coming in the name of human rights but the idea behind is to lead people into disalay,to make people turn against God. KWA OWERENGA KHALA MASO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Mwina azikwapulidwa akulu. Makolo azikwapulidwa mwina!. Mwambi wakuongola mtengo udakali waung’ono ukhale uli waukulu. Kupotoza dziko afiti a satanic. Tikungomvela! Satan take advantage of kids and women, once the children and women are misled, the future will be in Satan’s hands easily. We are being fooled but we clap our hands for the little they blind us with. At last kids beat their parents and women beats their husbands. Child abuse and women abuse is all that we hear! Is there men abuse or rights for men. The devil is a liar.

  11. The Bible is very clear on child upbringing “spare the rod and spoil the child.” The guiding principle should not to harm the child. Cane the child with a loving spirit. The teaching by Vision is misleading. I beg to differ.
