REPSSI and Synergos have collaborated to work with local organisations in Eswatini and Malawi to promote social connectedness in their work with children. Everyone needs rich connections to other people, to places and to nature, to a sense of purpose, and to an experience of power and agency.
We challenge the leaders around the world to treat the principle of belonging as a right.
From 2017-2019 REPSSI Malawi partnered with FAWEMA and the Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare (MGCDSW) to work with 20 community-based caregivers in Lilongwe District. Results from baseline and end line survey show about 20 per cent of the children involved in the project found improvement in all aspects of their psychosocial wellbeing.
