Zathu and Girl Effect Partners Girl Effect is a creative NGO that uses media platforms (such as music and radio) to confront real-life issues for girls and boys; to challenge the way people think about girls and enable them to reach their full potential; and which in turn can help break the poverty cycle.
Girl Effect is part of the DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe) – partnership with PEPFAR which focuses on reducing HIV infections in adolescent girls and young women across 15 African countries, including Malawi.
The partnership led to the development of the Zathu brand in 2017. Zathu is a branded media initiative created with youth Malawian which aims to inspire, inform and connect girls and boys to services they need, and to take action to change their lives.
This exciting multimedia brand is comprised of a radio show ‘Zathu Pa Wailsesi’ (radio drama and talk show), Zathumagazine, music and music videos from Zathu Band and a youth clubs network across the country.
Understanding the potential for change through brands, GAVI partnered with Girl Effect/Zathu to empower girls and create demand for the HPV vaccine, Zathu has also partnered with UNESCO to promote TEVET training especially for girls.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
