Trócaire

Addressing practices that expose women and girls to violence

Malawi
2012 - 2021

Trócaire was established by the Catholic Church in 1973 as a way for Irish people to support the most vulnerable people in the developing world, whilst also raising awareness of development in Ireland. They work with local and church partners to support communities in over 20 developing countries with a focus on food and resource rights, women’s empowerment and humanitarian response.

Grant funding from HDF supports Trócaire’s work in Malawi to address socio-cultural practices that expose children to violence. Trócaire is also piloting work to explore the scale and nature of online child sexual abuse in Malawi in partnership with INTERPOL and the Malawian Police, Ministry of Justice and Communications Regulation Authority.
