Trócaire

Addressing traditions that expose women and girls to violence

Malawi
2012 - 2019

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, while 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 traditions that expose women and girls to violence, harmful practices such as child marriage, and HIV.
