About My Work
I work as a Programme Officer with IM Swedish Development Partner. I support, coordinate and work with partners in building their capacity to engage with governments, fellow civil society groups and communities to demand transparency and accountability of public service. My role also involves engaging in networks and platforms to ensure ensured space for civil society.

I have also worked as a National Coordinator for Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Malawi coalition. I have over 6 years of experience working with rural communities, government and non-governmental organizations. My role as a Programme Officer with the Centre for Environmental Policy and Advocacy over the past 5 years has been to lead CEPA’s and PWYP’s engagement on general Extractive Industries (EI) governance related issues. I am passionate about improving governance and social, economic rights in Malawi and beyond related to EI. I have been part of the Multi stakeholders group of the EITI in Malawi.

I have provided support and trained civil society and community members on mining governance. I have led civil society efforts towards monitoring compliance of mining companies with the regulations using different channels. I am particularly passionate about advocating for women’s and children´s rights in the mining communities, more particularly concerning their displacement, resettlement and compensation.
