New UK Charity Launches In Malawi
UK charity Malawi Farmers Aid is starting it's first program in Malawi.
Malawi is the poorest country in Africa. The majority of it's population earn their living from farming, mostly on a small scale in remote rural areas. There are vast tracts of unused fertile land, which if developed and managed correctly, would provide food for the entire population.
Youth unemployment is high in Malawi, particularly in the rural villages, and for that reason MFA's projects will concentrate on training and supporting the young school leavers who are desperate to find work.
By providing correct training and helping to source farm inputs such as tools, seeds and fertilizer, the young people will gain skills which will enable them to make a viable living from the land.
MFA aims to create employment and eliminate hunger by helping the young people of Malawi grow their way out of poverty.
