Right now, nearly half of Malawi’s children are malnourished.

Our partnership with Yamba Malawi began in 2018, focused on helping farmers grow more food. By equipping farmers with the tools and seeds they need to succeed, they can increase their yields and provide more food to their communities. On average, each farmer in the program improves from making $20 a year to over $145 per harvest. 

In 2020, due to the pandemic, our activities in Malawi extended to emergency relief by providing soap and hygiene education to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Your impact:

Since 2018, your support has helped 132 farmers in Malawi. Those farmers are currently growing enough food to feed 57,000 people. Because of farmers' increased incomes, 650 kids are now enrolled in school for the first time.
