The Mothers' Union

at the Scottish Parliament

At the Scottish Parliament's Cross-Party Group on Malawi on Wednesday, 28 October 2009 the Mothers' Union gave a presentation on the Literacy and Development Project that they run in Malawi. The Mothers' Union Senior Central Development Officer, Naomi Herbert (above), spoke about the learning process used by the trainers and how many women and men it had enabled to become literate. This has led them to take better control of their lives and become active in their communities.

Sheila Redwood, MU President for Scotland introduced Naomi and there was another speaker, herself a Malawian. Joyce Phimi, a vice chair of the Cross-Party Group, spoke of her concern for the girl child in Malawi who were abused very early in their lives. Both presentations were well received and discussion followed.
