I am a UK citizen, and for the last few years I have been running a small charity to help the young people in rural Malawi.

They are eager to work - but there are no jobs. There are plenty of opportunities for them to start their own business in agriculture, and with the guidance and support of myself and the Tiwavwire Youth Organisation in Malawi, we have provided dozens of young people with the training, tools, and materials to grow crops.

And the results have been amazing. This year we provided £ 500 for the youths of Mdenka village to grow 2 acres of tomatoes. These can be grown outdoors due to the perfect climate. 

There was a fantastic crop, which was sold for £2,300. 

This gave the young people an income to support themselves and their families.

It also gave them self worth, and the motivation to continue working to expand their small farm, and start to give jobs to their friends. 


We want to repeat this project in the nearby village of Maduna.

       £5 buys a hoe to cultivate the soil.

       £ 10 buys a cheap wheelbarrow.

       £ 20 buys a bag of fertiliser.

       But even one penny helps !



                        


            Please give whatever you can to help these poor youngsters

                           to grow their way out of poverty.
