WWOOF Malawi in collaboration with COFO focused on an agribusiness project through needs assessment where we observed that parents are unable to buy school uniform and other clothes, cannot give them food before going to school and do not manage to pay school fees.
The project has brought together about 30 local farmers into two farm clubs and continues supporting them in attaining successful harvests. With these efforts, food is put on the plates of about 300 people in total. We provided maize seeds, vegetable seeds, watering cans, pesticides and a sprayer. We are currently fundraising to help one farmers group to implement irrigation farming techniques to help provide food security in the face of local flooding and droughts.
The main goal of the project was to have increased access to education and the retention of young people in schools of Traditional Authority (T/A) Maseya in Chikwawa district with 85%
The project aimed at increasing awareness on access to education and the retention of girls and boys in school and to promote the involvement of girls and boys in small scale Agri-businesses in T/A Maseya in Chikwawa district with 90%.
