Using a TVET institution as the setting, Robert Chiwamba, STEP ambassador has launched Taima (Here We Stand) to call on all of Malawi to end gender based violence. The poem Taima (Here We Stand) calls on all people to take a stand against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and particularly for men to be role models as advocates for the elimination of GBV.
