LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Christian Blind Mission (CBM) says it is impressed with the implementation of the CEPPAM project which contributes to the promotion and protection of rights of persons with albinism in Malawi.

Speaking during a joint-monitoring visit between CMB and Malawi Human Rights Resource Centre (MHRRC), CBM Malawi Senior Programmes Officer Andrew Kachingwe expressed satisfaction with how the project is being managed in Dowa district. He commended MHRRC for promoting collaboration among key stakeholders in promoting rights of persons with Albinism in the district such as Malawi Police Service, Area development committees (ADCs), education, health and district social welfare office among others.

Kachingwe made the remarks on Thursday during a joint-monitoring meeting which took place at Mponela Teachers Development Centre (TDC) in the Dowa district which involved district social welfare office, ADCs and some APAM members.

Taking his turn, MHRRC Programme Officer, Enock Chinkhuntha, echoed with Kachingwe that CEPPAM project has made alot of progress in terms of promoting rights of persons with albinism in the district. Chinkhuntha commended Dowa district council for including needy persons with albinism in social protection programmes like Affordable Input Programme (AIP) and Social Cash Transfer. He also applauded the Dowa district council for ensuring that persons with Albinism are participating in local development structures like VDCs and ADCs.

Speaking on behalf of the Association of Persons with Albinism in the district, Wesley Malili who is also APAM district coordinator, applauded MHRRC for the interventions being done in Dowa and other districts.

Malili said the project has helped persons with albinism and the general public in the district to understand Albinism and how best they can promote and protect rights of persons with albinism.

Malili asked CBM and EU to extend their support to CEPPAM project as it is transforming lives of persons with albinism in the district.

CEPPAM project is being implemented by MHRRC in six districts including Dowa with funding from European Union (EU) through Christian Blind Mission (CBM) Malawi.
