The women of the I DREAM Movement by now are known throughout Malawi. They are increasingly asked to participate in public events and presentations to share their story and provide an example on how it is possible to live and develop one’s own ambitions in a society that, especially in the rural areas, does not yet recognize the role of women and how they can contribute to the development of the country.

On 27 February 2017 a contract was signed between the Community of Sant’Egidio and the Japanese embassy in Maputo for the development of the ward for cancer prevention at the “woman’s health center” in Zimpeto, Maputo.
The Zimpeto area is located in the Ka Mabukwana district, in the northern suburbs of Maputo. The district’s population is of about 337,000 inhabitants, of which 60% are aged 15-64. (. . .)
