Tsogolo Labwino literally translates to ‘towards a brighter future’ – and that is exactly what this wide reaching project is helping some of Malawi’s poorest communities achieve. Working directly with grassroots community groups, the project is improving food security and resilience to changing climates through sustainable livelihoods and natural resource management. Community members also receive literacy and micro-finance training and experience better health thanks to improved access to clean water.
One of the project activities includes providing bee hives to farmers to string up between trees. This helps encourage forest regeneration and provides honey for families to sell or eat. Yum!
74% of Malawians live on less than $1.25/day
Malawi ranks 174th out of 187 countries in the Human Development Index.
The Tsogolo Labwino Project operates until 2019 before being reviewed for possible future phases. Our annual fundraising target is $154,900. Every donation you make to this project will be combined with funding from the Australian government to reach more people. We have committed to contribute $1 for every $5 we receive from the Australian government. Your donation will allow us to extend our programs.
