National Initiative for Civic Education (NICE) Trust has rolled out a Governance Monitoring Platform Project that will track adherence to Covid-19 preventive measures and Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the country.
Nice Trust Executive Director, Ollen Mwalubunju disclosed this on Tuesday during a training of volunteers that would work on project indicators at Lunzu in Blantyre.
“Having successfully utilized Information, Communication Technology (ICT) framework in elections, we thought of widening our scope by looking at other national issues to track government progres, “he said.
The NICE Trust is expected to work with volunteers that will provide information so that relevant sector should intervene on issues such as GBV.
Nice Trust will have a small intervention room with stakeholders like the police and health personnel to respond to the issues promptly.
NICE Trust is implementing the Governance Monitoring Platform Project with funding from the Malawi Government, UN Women and European Union.
In her remarks, one of the participants Gloria Mphepo from Chilaweni in Blantyre said the training will help them to track and report Covid-19 preventive measures and GBV cases.
