The Federation of Disability Organizations in Malawi FEDOMA embarks on the training Area Development Committees ADCs on gender and  disability mainstreaming as it has seen M’bwana ADC of Traditional Authority M’bwana of Usisya in Nkhata-Bay being drilled on how to embrace gender issues.

Speaking during the training exercise, FEDOMA Acting Executive Director Simon Munde said it is the wish of all Organizations with Disabilities to see local developmental structures  like area Development Committees ADCs to be drilled in gender and disability mainstreaming so that marginalized groups should be left behind in policy and decision making.

” It is a must that Women and persons with disabilities should take part in all decision making committees so that no one should be left behind and in the end enhancing a barrier free society for all and it is our hope that here in Nkhata-Bay, ADCs must take gender issues seriously,” he said.

FEDOMA takes a swipe to train ADCs on gender mainstreaming as such structures are custodians of local developmental activities hence the training.
