Timveni Child and Youth Media organization on Friday, launched its Amplifying Children’s Project in Karonga District with the aim of instilling entrepreneurial spirit in the youth.
Speaking during the launch, the organization’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Ernest Makanda, said most youth in Malawi are not economically independent.
“We believe in self-commitment, and we are calling for all the youth in Malawi, who want to achieve great heights in life, but are currently jobless, to go into entrepreneurship.

“This project is advocating for economic empowerment, and education as a way of addressing child and forced marriages, and child labor, among other factors that are affecting the youth,” Makanda said.
The three-year project will be implemented in the areas of Senior Chiefs Wasambo and Mwilang’ombe, and is made available with funding from Plan International.
Plan International’s Community Development Facilitator, Atusaye Nyondo, expressed concern that the cases of child marriagesand child labor remain rampant in the district despite efforts by Government and different stakeholders to end the same.
The project was initially launched in Mzimba, Kasungu, and Lilongwe in 2016.
Apart from Karonga, it was launched in Nkhotakota and Mulanje earlier this year.
