Multimedia AIDS Communication Programme (MACP)
Sustainable Rural Growth and Development Initiative and Digital Multimedia Solutions are running a Multimedia AIDS Communication Project (MACP) with support from PEPFAR funds. The project has been working in 20 schools in Blantyre to provide HIV/AIDS Information to secondary school through ICT.
SRGDI is implementing MACP. The aim of the programme is to enhance the accessibility of HIV/AIDS prevention information through technology, by coming up with an Interactive/Multimedia CD, web/online application projects on HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and Support. In this era of technology we have found that a lot of students get information through CD/DVDs and social communication SRGDI has been very instrumental in providing HIV/AIDS and Gender Equality awareness to communities.
SRGDI is the secretariat of Men for Gender Equality Now (MEGEN)‐Blantyre Chapter in Malawi. SRGDI organises meeting with men in the society inorder to promote eradicate gender based violence:
