Civil Society

UNICEF Malawi has partnerships in place with over 50 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) - both local and international- across all programmatic areas. While the focus of these partnerships has been mostly on the area of service delivery, partnerships are being strengthened to support social accountability and advocacy-based collaboration through platforms like A Promise Renewed and the End Violence campaign.

UNICEF Malawi continues to partner with the Malawi NGO Coalition on Child Rights in order to support its capacity to improve the coordination among NGOs working in the area of promotion and protection of child rights. The coalition consists of the following NGOs:

Malawi Health Equity Network (MEHN) 
Malawi Economic Justice Network (MEJN) 
Network of Organizations for Vulnerable and Orphaned Children (NOVOC)
Gender Coordination Network (GCN) 
Human Rights Consultative Committee (HRCC)
Malawi Human Rights Youth Network (MHRYN)
Water and Environmental Sanitation Network (WESN)
Civil Society Coalition for Quality Basic Education (CSCQBE)

Other key local civil society partners of UNICEF Malawi include:

Malawi Inter-faith Association: UNICEF Malawi and MIAA have officially launched a child protection programme within the faith community, with nine heads of various faith bodies in the country signing a declaration to protect children from abuse, violence and exploitation. We also work together in promoting the Day of Prayer and Action for Child Protection.
FAWEMA: UNICEF is currently supporting FAWEMA to coordinate the Girls Education Network.
