While in Mozambique, I received an update from Victoria Chifeche, who is the Executive Secretary of the United Methodist Women in the South Episcopal Area for the Church. Here is a report on the workshop they completed to train individuals on basic human rights on maternal, sexual and reproductive health, and child protection to fight early marriages.
In a nutshell:
1) More than 20 men and women participated from 6 districts in southern Mozambique attended this first conference.
2) Partners included USAID - MCHIP, Save the Children, Jhpiego (affiliate of Johns Hopkins University)
3) This is a priority of Bishop Nhanala and will be growing in the coming years.
