STRUGGLES OF WOMEN IN MINING COMMUNITIES IN MALAWIBy Lusayo Ruth Banda
MINERAL RESOURCES IN MALAWI
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, CONTINUED
OIL MINING ON LAKE MALAWI
COMPANIES AND THEIR ROLE
It has been noted that these multinational companies do not give Malawians optimum benefits from these extraction activities. They do not even fulfill their corporate social responsibility
Is this the promised mining town? No electricity, no tap water
A CASE STUDY OF KAYELEKERA AND KANYIKA MINING COMMUNITIES
KAYELEKERA URANIUM MINE
Only a few women attended the meeting
KANYIKA NIOBIUM MINE
WOMEN’S RESPONSE IN THESE AREAS
THE ROLE OF OUR ORGANIZATION
THE ROLE OF OTHER CSOs
Malawi is a patriarchy society in which women have little or no say in issues that affect them or the community. There is need to create awareness through women’s voices on rights of women within mining societies and spearhead a process of addressing women rights violations in these societies.
Malawi has a vast amount of resources, if well managed, they can transform the lives of its people. And to achieve this, we all need to work together.
