CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER! JOIN US AS WE CONGRATULATE MARGARET SAPEZEKA ON HER PROMOTION TO THE POSITION OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

Margaret Sapezeka is a young woman aged 26. She has recently been promoted to the position of Executive Director for Community Initiative for Social Empowerment (CISE). Until her promotion, she was working as the Deputy Executive Director. Community Initiative for Social Empowerment πŸ…²πŸ…ΈπŸ†‚πŸ…΄ is one of the highest performing youth organisations affiliated with the National Youth Council of Malawi. The organisation is based in Mchinji District.

In 2016, Margaret was nominated by the National Youth Council of Malawi (NYCOM) as one of the two Youth Representatives in Malawi Partnership Forum (MPF), a position she still holds.  MPF is an advisory body to the Malawi National AIDS Commission (NAC) Board of Commissioners, comprising of high profile decision makers drawn from all the key HIV and AIDS sectors and constituencies. It plays a critical role in planning and reviewing the national response to HIV and AIDS in this country.

Margaret holds a Diploma in Human Resource Management and boasts of immense experience in youth work with a key focus on HIV and AID, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), Gender, Education and Child Rights related programming to her name.

Currently, the National Youth Council of Malawi has over 190 affiliated youth organisations and out of this number, only less than 10 are headed by the female Executive Directors.  Her promotion is a good news to us.

We wish Margaret a successful journey of leadership in her new role and we hope that she will be a role model to many girls in youth structures across the country.
