FRC Dignity meet the First Lady of Malawi

Our very own Pearl Moses, representing FRC Dignity (Ulemu) along with our Malawi First Ladypartners Abby Olefuymi (Builder’s House) and Dr Kunle (African Child Trust) met with the First Lady of Malawi on 1st December 2015.

Pearl says ‘The meeting with Malawi’s first lady, her excellency Madame Gertrude Hendrina Mutharika went extremely well. What was perhaps really exciting was the way our Dignity project aligned with the first lady’s own vision for the beautification of Malawi and the education and elevation of the girl child.’

Gertrude Maseku is married to the President of Malawi (Professor Arthur Peter Mutharaka), who was sworn in as President of Malawi in May 2014, shortly before marrying Gertrude in June 2014.

The First Lady was previously involved in politics for many years and was a member of the National Assembly in Malawi between 2009 and 2014.

Plans for ACT to move into Balaka were of particular interest to her because it is the First Lady’s home town. She was so touched that she has given Pearl a direct contact with her office through the Minister for Women’s Health who also attended the meeting.
