Our Team

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote ecological ways of food production through food waste reduction and promote reuse of animal waste in crop production to reach out to a community of approximately 10000 thousand people. Agriculture contributes the 80% of GDP in Malawi.

Our Background

Coming from communities stricken by hunger and malnutrition with 53% of the population living under poverty line, in a country called Malawi, we are a group of young inspired Malawians who have the zeal to combat the vulnerability of our community in Malawi caused by food insecurity that has claimed the lives of more than 3000 people in the year 2012. We are greatly concerned by the drop in food production in the years 2001 and 2002 with a major decline from 2.5 to 1.7 million metric tons. Our focus is to develop ideas on how to increase the food production in our community in Malawi. Our idea is to create an integrated farm that will involve pig production and crop production that will educate the people with new sustainable methods of farming at the same time providing them with job opportunities. We are passionate about people’s wellbeing that is why we would like to fight hunger through the establishment of the integrated farm that will supply the basic need of the people and promote ecological ways of producing food and enforce reuse of resources and reduction of food waste.
