Helping young farmers thrive in Malawi
Malawi’s farmers battle floods, droughts and pests to make a living. Adverse conditions caused by climate change can wipe out entire harvests – and the impact on children can be catastrophic. 37% of Malawian children are chronically malnourished.
Our five-year project, Helping Young Farmers Thrive in Malawi, is aiming to help over 145,000 farmers to diversify, strengthen and green their businesses. Climate-safe agriculture learned through our Farmer Field Schools is making sure farmers can grow enough food year-round, while savings and loans groups are increasing financial stability, helping Malawi’s farmers build greener and more resilient livelihoods.
