Her Liberty Malawi

Background:

HeR Liberty is a Women-led organisation that envisions Malawi’s future growth and development through investing in the health, education and capabilities of young people. HeR Liberty supports young people with age appropriate educational information especially Sexually Reproductive Health information, training and mentorship to ensure they reach their fullest potential. The organization has reached over 5000 young people through our peer to peer model.

Her Liberty believes in the power of young people to make informed decisions when they have been educated and trained with all the relevant information and advocacy skills especially girls and young women. Her Liberty was originally established in Namibia in the year of 2012, by three young women activists striving for a community of empowered women and girls living with respect, self-worth and dignity. HeR Liberty works with young people focusing on empowerment and peer mentorship programs. Currently HeR Liberty is registered with National Youth Council, Zomba Civil Society Organisation and the Malawi Government under the Trustees Incorporation Act.

HeR Liberty Malawi was established against the backdrop of: Young people who drop out of school due to financial challenges, child marriage and early & unintended pregnancy, lack of guidance, counselling and mentorship services for young people, lack of access to youth friendly information including comprehensive sexuality education. HeR Liberty equips and supports youth led organisations, youth groups and young individuals especially girls and young women to be change agents in their respective communities.
