Precious Tanya Maleka - Youth Wave Changemaker 2021

Precious Maleka

A 23 year old Mchinji-based holder of  Diploma in Procurement & Supply Operations and a social worker by heart & passion. Am the founder/Director of Action For Change, Gender & SRHR advocate and Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) facilitator.

I believe the challenges young people face within their communities due to the lack of Sexual Reproductive Health information and services is a huge threat to the nation because first thing when empowering young people is to give them access to SRHR.

If we want to achieve meaningful inclusion and empowerment of young people, we need to fill out the gap that is hindering young people in accessing these services between the service providers and the beneficiaries. I am a vibrant youth leader who promotes Gender Equality and active participation when it comes to the development within our communities and at a national level.
