LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Afro Green Initiative (AGI) revealed that climate change has negative impacts on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) hence the need for people to operate in a healthy environment.
The was revealed during an engagement activity with the youths at Nalikule Teachers Training College in Lilongwe on Thursday, March 18, 2022.
During the engagement activity, AGI discussed sexual and reproductive health rights in the wake of climate change with the young girls and women groups who were in attendance.
In an interview with Maravi Post, Country Director of World Of Difference (WOD), Eston Mgala, said the knowledge passed on to college students and teachers will also be transferred to learners after training.
In her remarks, AGI youth coordinator, Malango Kayira observed that rural communities have limited access to information.
Kayira said that Nalikule engagement will help surrounding communities to have the information beforehand.
She believes that women and girls are more affected by the effects of climate change as compared to men hence the decision to engage women and girls.
Sylvester Lomose, President of Nalikule student Council, commended the organization for the effort to deliver such important message to the people particularly women and girls at the institution.
Lomose added that the institution will put the knowledge shared to good use.
