Positive Media for Malawi



For the first time since our project has been based in Malawi the country is getting some much needed positive international media. This week the Economist has run an article entitled " Rejoice, it's Joyce" and the Guardian ran an article entitled "Malawi's Joyce Banda puts women's rights at centre of new presidency".

I particularly liked the following comment from JB in the Guardian article
"Africa is changing... I hope you know that we are doing better than most countries. America is still struggling to put a woman in the White House but we have two, so we're doing fine. This is what people did not expect us to achieve but we have."
