Welcome To CAVWOC

Women and Children in Malawi face a lot of challenges in terms of inequalities, physical and sexual abuses, forced marriages and economic deprivation. Centre for Alternatives for Victimized Women and Children (CAVWOC) believes a society free from gender based violence and all forms of abuse against children and women is possible in Malawi. In order to achieve this, CAVWOC provides the following to communities it works in:

  • Capacity building of community structures and justice providers to reduce occurrences of Gender Based Violence (GBV).
  • Access to knowledge on and utilization of Sexual Reproductive Health services including HIV and AIDS.
  • Promotion of quality, safe and equitable education for girls.
  • Promotion of use of safe and portable water and uptake of standard sanitary and hygiene practices.
