H. Role of non-governmental organizations

There are few non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Malawi and Government policy is not very supportive of NGO activity in the country. Consequently, local NGOs were not involved in the project. This led to limited general awareness of the Project among the population of Malawi and has constrained the dissemination of the lessons learned by the Project to a wider public.
