Challenge

Families in southern Malawi struggle to survive as the hardships of day-to-day life become increasingly insurmountable. The area is in a drought / flood cycle zone. These are subsistence farming families that work tirelessly yet are rarely able to produce enough food for an entire year when harvesting a single crop annually.

Solution

Families will grow more food and harvest 2 or 3 crops per year by using a treadle pump for irrigation. Your contribution will improve the life for 60 rural farmers in southern Malawi, as each treadle pump is shared with nearby families.

Long-Term Impact

The farmers in each village will increase their ability to grow vegetables by 100%. Each farmer will be able to grow enough to feed a family of five or more year-round. Plus, each family will grow additional vegetables to sell for a cash crop.
