Stop giving handouts to street kids – Brothers in Arms

A local organisation known as Brothers in Arms says Malawi will struggle to reduce the number of homeless youths on the streets unless the public stops the tendency of giving them handouts.

During the integration of 60 street children into their Hope Centre in Lunzu, Blantyre, the Executive Director of Brothers in Arms Asante Masanche said it is important to rehabilitate, educate and reintegrate them into society.

According to Masanche, handouts only make the children remain on the streets, which in turn perpetuates crime.

Brothers in Arms has been supporting street-connected children in Blantyre since 2020, with over 150 youths benefiting from their programme with some gaining vocational skills like welding, panel beating and tailoring.
