MISSION CAPSULE: Ten year old Joseph lives with his family in northern Malawi. One day, Joseph showed up to school, not quite himself. His friends noticed and asked what was wrong. “My father and mother shout at each other and fight almost every week. Sometimes my father calls us bad names and chases us out of the house at night, for no reason,” he said. His friends, who had learned about children’s rights and what support was available to them, urged him to speak to a Child Protection Worker. The Child Protection Worker understood the economic challenges that were exacerbating the abuse and connected the family with resources to address them. Together, the family is using what they have learned to build a more peaceful home. This project is supported by PWS&D.

MORE FROM THE SECOND GRADE SCHOOL CHILDREN:

What kind of a little girl was your mom?

My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
They say she used to be nice.

What did your mom need to know about dad before she married him?

His last name.
She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
Does he make at least $800.00 a year? Did he say no to drugs and yes to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?

My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world and my mom eats a lot.
She got too old to do anything else with him.
My grandma says that mom didn’t have her thinking cap on.

Have a good week - MB
