The project strategy leverages six years of PCTFI implementation in Malawi, best practices, lessons learned and proven approaches and tools for the CARE world; and opportunities for collaboration at all levels to map out the pathways to achieving the impact goal. The proposed interventions are organized under 3 thematic areas related to the adolescent girl’s agency and relations and to the structures that influence her empowerment. Read More...

Patsy Collins Trust Fund Initiative (PCTFI) Situation Analysis Study Report

The situation analysis was conducted in order to produce a comprehensive report for the Malawi Patsy Collins Trust Fund Initiative (PCTFI) to be implemented in Kasungu district.

CARE Malawi is already implementing a number of other projects in Kasungu district and in order to contribute to solving the educational problems in the country, CARE Malawi was looking at maximizing the impact and synergy of its programs by increasing intra-sector and cross-sector coordination and collaboration and narrowing the spread of the programs by mapping and prioritizing key geographical areas of coverage. It was therefore felt that a Situational Analysis would be useful to get a better idea of the prevailing situation in Kasungu that the PCTFI project was to address.
