Changemaker:George Nkhoma

Location:Malawi

I’m playing my part for reproductive and maternal healthcare by standing up for the rights of mothers and newborn, and by building capacity of midwives on RMC.

I liked the way WRA advocated for midwives and the community for change, and how they brought the community and facility members together.

My name is George Nkhoma and I am from Malawi. I first heard about White Ribbon Alliance through a colleague. I liked the way WRA advocated for midwives and the community for change, and how they brought the community and facility members together.

One of my favorite memories was attending the 71st United Nations General Assembly in New York where I spoke at the women’s forum.  At this forum, I presented the situation analysis of the midwifery profession in Malawi with some personal examples.

I have seen the lasting impact of White Ribbon Alliance in my community. The community and hospital workers are aware of their rights and responsibilities in maternal newborn and child health care. I look forward to the White Ribbon Alliance movement growing in the future through increased engagement from midwives and community members.

Thank youGeorge Nkhoma

for playing your part.
