Commitment to Action

Improving Food Security and Farmer Income in Malawi

Commitment by

Humana People To People

In 2010, Humana People to People committed to improve the food security and increase the income levels of 18,000 small-scale farmers in Malawi through its implementing agency, Development Aid From People to People (DAPP). To achieve these goals, DAPP will work closely with the Malawian Government to bring farming families together in organized cooperative structures to offer them training in sustainable agriculture, conservation farming, crop diversification, and water management. Through this training, DAPP aims to enable farmers to improve crop quality, increase yields, and improve their economic status. Ultimately, Humana People to People aims to empower and build capacity for smallholder Malawi farmers, thereby enabling them to become the driving force behind improvements in agricultural techniques, food security, income, access to markets, and their overall living conditions.
