The youthful Project Administrator for the Polytechnic Innovation Hub Misael Buliani has been nominated as 2019 Africa4Her Champion by the Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) Network for his research he has done on the roles of women in the society.

Buliani who is a YALI alumnus has been recognized for the role he plays in issues to do with women and girls in the country.

Through training, skills and knowledge he learned from the leadership center in South Africa, he has introduced an initiative, which is empowering girls and women in the society.

“The initiative centers on advocacy, donating school materials and also seeking for possible bursary for girls.  It has been introduced in 15 communities in Malawi in various districts,” Buliani explained.

The Project Administrator was also nominated as one of the Youth and Women advocates in Africa and became the National Ambassador for Beta Me Better Africa Organization based in Nigeria.

Buliani also empowers women and girls in a project called ‘Nzotheka’ which promotes those who are less privileged and drop outs to go back to school. 

Nzotheka project provides them with self-employment skills, which could help them towards the development of their communities.

Caroline Njolomole wrote on the YALI webpage; “I nominate Misael Buliani because he is a talented young man who is standing for the rights of females in Malawi. He has put Malawi on the map with his great research.”

As one of the youth and women advocates he was asked by COMESA to give an overview on how Malawi is progressing in terms of empowering women.

Every month YALI team select a global champion to be featured on their website and also Facebook page.
