I am a community based human rights defender, leader and founder of a community based organization called Golomoti Active AIDS Support Organization(GASO) found in one of the remotest areas in Dedza District in Malawi. GASO has worked to empower rural people from this area of Traditional Authority Kachindamoto (Female Chief) who has always supported our work in this community. I have led thi organization for over 12 years now.

By joining Grassroots this network I hope to meet more or equally experienced colleagues from around the world in empowering the people to know and use the laws that govern them . I hope to learn more from these colleagues through the discussions and other activities of this forum and apply or replicate the best practices in my rural community.
