Lian Teresa Hickey
I am volunteering with the Coalition of Women Living with HIV and AIDS (COWLHA) in research, documentation and advocacy for the next 8 months from September 2017 to April 2018. I will be living in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. While at COWLHA I will be helping to develop an advocacy strategy, writing proposals, doing research on a variety of topics and assisting with documentation and social media.
In addition to my mandate, I will be exploring Malawi and learning about it’s people and culture. Malawi is a small but beautiful country in the central-southern region of Africa from its mountains and lakes to busy markets in Lilongwe. I hope you enjoy reading about my time here.
