International Day of the Girl: Discussion with Rose Tchwenko of CARE Malawi

Dr. Taghrid Khuri, adjunct professor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at PSU, and Dr. Pronoy Rai, assistant professor of International & Global Studies, will join Rose Tchwenko of CARE Malawi in a panel discussion on issues impacting women and girls around the world. Topics include global health, economic empowerment, gender issues, education, gender-based violence, and more. 

Rose F. Tchwenko is a seasoned humanitarian with more than a decade of experience in senior leadership and management roles in international development. She is deeply committed to the humanitarian mandate to save lives by eradicating extreme poverty and combating social injustice. Rose has broad, practical experience with the operations of international NGOs from leading and participating in key processes including strategic and business planning; program development and management; resource mobilisation and donor relations; financial and administrative management; emergency preparedness; human resource management; media, advocacy and public relations; and partnerships. Further to her work in development, Rose has amassed considerable experience in the management of emergency operations having led relief and recovery operations in response to floods, cholera outbreaks and food crises. She has completed courses on humanitarian accountability and quality standards and strives to keep abreast with developments in the sector. Her extensive background in Sub Saharan Africa gives her the requisite knowledge of how governments and community structures work and how international and local NGOs can work together effectively to sustainably fulfil their mandates. Most importantly, Rose believes that the greatest asset of any humanitarian organisation is its people and dedicates significant time and effort to build high performing, effective teams.
