Celebrating the Women of Temwa
This International Women’s Day we’re celebrating some of the women of Temwa. We’d love to celebrate every woman on the team as well as all the wonderful change-makers in the communities of Nkhata Bay North, however that would make a very long article so we’ll focus on just two. We’d like to introduce you to Luzily, Temwa Malawi’s Communications Officer, and Marianne, Temwa UK’s Fundraising and Events Assistant and newest team member. International Women’s Day is a chance to recognise the work of women worldwide and to acknowledge the barriers to equality that women face every day.
Meet Luzily Chiponde
Luzily studied at the University of Malawi and has worked with the team in Usisya since September 2020. As Communications Officer she works with visits communities that Temwa works with throughout Nkhata Bay North. Collecting case studies and talking with community members, Luzily is a key part of the team ensuring that we can share stories from Temwa’s projects with you.
Marianne Mooney – Temwa’s newest team member
Marianne joined the team just a few weeks ago and has already made a great start. Marianne has a Master’s Degree in Gender and International Relations from the University of Bristol and is working on some pretty exciting events for Temwa! Her bubbly personality is right at home looking after Temwa’s event participants and she’s currently working with several teams that are taking part in Temwa’s latest fundraising challenge Climb for Community. Keep an eye out for some of the events she’s been planning by signing up to our monthly newsletter and following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
