Over 80% of the population of Malawi is rural. Malawi’s economy is largely agrarian. More importantly, many of the people in our operation areas are subsistence farmers. They farm to survive and only sell what little they have left. The importance of farming and agriculture in Malawi cannot be overstated.

More than 80 percent of Malawians are rural subsistence farmers who are dependent on their crops for food and basic survival. Increasing the yields of smallholder farmers is crucial to the economic development of our catchment area. With many Malawians living on just over $1.00 a day, increased income through improved farming is the only opportunity most Malawians will ever have to improve their standard of living. We give hope and the empowerment to improve lives through agriculture education and training.
