Mudziwathu radio station has proved to be a darling to its listenership in Mchinji part of Lilongwe, Kasungu, Dowa and parts of Zambia and Mozambique.

Mudziwathu Radio came about as part of the In My Village/“MmudziMwathu” Project which aimed at reaching over 90% of 550, 000 of the Mchinji District population with messages promoting abstinence and being faithful in the fight against HIV and AIDS, and mobilizing communities to support education for Orphans and other Vulnerable Children (OVCs), and promoting care for People With HIV and AIDS (PLWHAs).

The radio established 52 listening clubs in various parts of Mchinji which serve as conduits for information dissemination and community mobilization to attain ripple effects. The listening clubs also served as hubs for community-based initiatives such as fund-raising activities and farming activities to raise food and funds to support OVCs and PLWHAs.
