May update from Malawi Fruits:

We are delighted that Malawi Fruits is to receive a grant from the Scottish Government for our work Inspiring young farmers.
For the next three years, we will work with young people in Northern Malawi to support them to get involved with modern farming methods rather than the subsistence farming which is the norm in Malawi.  Modern farming means:

  • Having access to irrigation to protect from the worst effects of climate change and grow two crops per year.
  • Having access to tractor and plough to take the back-breaking element out of the work and tackle child labour – currently the whole family gets involved in preparing the land for planting.
  • Having access to training and good quality inputs to grow cash crops as well as food.
  • Having access to a reliable market to buy the crop at a fair price.
