To build the capacity of most vulnerable households to meet their basic needs and withstand shocks (by resisting or adapting their livelihoods).

Phalombe, Southern Region of Malawi

USD200,662 (MK86,284,450)

840 households.

The project uses the Farmer Field School (FFS) approach as an entry point for capacity and resilience building through intensive learning activities that require specific practical hands-on management skills and conceptual understanding of the “how and why” of the situation in a given context. The FFS are trained in modern farming methods to increase productivity and improve crop utilization for nutrition and value addition benefits, as well as income generation to improve their livelihoods.
