TfaC - Annual Report 2022-17_edited.jpg

We work at the intersections of  gender, sex and power 
- addressing issues that are silenced or ignored.


We are a non-profit organisation founded in 2003. We are independently registered in Malawi and the UK, and work closely with our sister organisation in Ghana. We also collaborate with partners worldwide.


Our vision is of an equal world, where everyone has choice and control over their bodies, and can use their voices freely and without fear.


We influence sexual and reproductive health behaviour change, social norms change, and policy change through bold, fearless storytelling and community participation.
