We're a single point of information and various types of resource on matters related to the rights, development, and the well-being of children and young people in Malawi.
From time to time, we initiate participatory and action research into all aspects of child and youth development, including their social and human rights in Malawi.
Beyond our resource centre in Lilongwe, we aim to facilitate the establishment of accessible and inclusive libraries, mainly in primary schools across Malawi.
We establish school clubs as our vehicle through which we raise awareness among children and youths on their rights and various issues affecting them.
Under the School Outreach Programme, we seek to establish and foster school clubs, mostly in primary schools. We have already established several school clubs in Lilongwe, and we are currently in the process of rolling out the programme in remote/rural areas of the country, resources permitting.
On May 2, 2012, we officially launched a school library with teachers’ offices at Chimvite Primary School, which we constructed in partnership with the surrounding community, with funding from USAID under its Self-Help Project.
So far, CRIDOC has received donations of books and other materials from the Bishop Mackenzie International High School, the UK-based Child Rights Information Network (CRIN), the National Library Service, and the National AIDS Commission (NAC), among many others. We're now mobilizing other resources, such as computers and the installation of a solar system that can power both the computers and lights.
You can join hands with us by contributing your knowledge and skills in various legal ways and capacities, such as mobilising resources; conline campaigns; social media management, and events management, just to mention a few roles.
You can choose any of our causes that interest you the most and donate any amount you feel comfortable with. We promise to utilise your donations with the utmost prudence and transparency possible.
We have partnered with the First Web Foundation in South Africa. They are supporting us by running various crowdfunding campaigns online. You. too, can join them by creating your own fundraiser pages through DonorBox.org.
