The Human Rights for Women and girls with Disabilities in Malawi was established to reflect an aspiration of the founding Director who decided to set up a local organization whose sole purpose would be to promote rights of women and girls with disabilities in Malawi. The founder was motivated by and against the background that women and girls with disabilities live in poor discriminatory environment and are often voiceless and not recognized. She had also realized that there were many women organizations that promoted women’s rights in Malawi there was no women’s organization that targeted women with disabilities. It was against this background to fill the gap that is there in women and girls with disabilities . Established in 2013 and registered in 2016
