* Malawi Youth Parliament meets in conjunction with the Day of the African Child
* 시간: 02 min 50 secs
* 12 Jun 2008


Speaking their minds, Malawi’s youth parliament met for the 7th time, in the capital Lilongwe this week, to discuss
issues facing the country’s youth. The timing is apt; the parliament coincides with the day of the African child,
celebrated on June 16th, and the theme for this year’s event is something these parliamentarians know all about,
giving youth a voice.


SOUNDBITE: Honorable Wepi Mzoa, Youth Parliamentarian (English)
‘Its like a voice to every child in Malawi, the children in Malawi are able to express themselves through the
parliamentarians. They are able to talk about the abuses they have, they help to come up with resolutions in every
kind of abuse they face.’
While the agenda includes issues such as health and education, emphasis has been placed on the ever-growing
threat of HIV/AIDS and related orphan hood.


At this UNICEF supported center outside Lilongwe, community members volunteer their time to look after children
under 5; almost half of these children are orphans. They are fed and looked after. While many now live with extended
families or older siblings, it is here that they get to be children again.


SOUNDBITE: Alitina Chimbewa, volunteer caregiver (English translation)
‘These orphans are from our community, if we don’t come in and help them, who’s going to do that. Some of them
have been traumatized by their experiences, but when they come here, after attending the center for a month or so,
you can actually see the change in them, they can play better, they can talk better, but most importantly, they can
smile, that’s the most important thing to me about this center.’


Also high on the agenda is the international food crisis. Malawi, still reeling from a nutritional crisis in 2005, is
expected to be hard hit. Mothers queue up with their babies at this rural clinic.


Back in Lilongwe, aspiring politicians debate these and other issues, resolutions are made and a detailed report
compiled. It will be presented to parliament. As the world celebrates the Day of the African child, Malwi’s youth are
ensuring their voices are heard.
