Towards food security and
economic independence

Every year Malawi suffers from food shortages, sometimes with shocking famine. The way corn was grown had too little of a return to provide food for everyone. This was the reason to introduce a new agricultural method: the Food For Life (FFF) project.

100.000 people has got food every day

In 2012, the art of Charity Foundation started this project with 27 farmers. The new method worked! In 2020, eight years later, more than 3,500 farmers are already involved in the project and the yield is 5,000 tons of maize. Every second someone in Malawi eats a plate of porridge!

WHAT ARE WE DOING

In Malawi they call this project ‘the miracle of Malawi’. Thanks to the own efforts of the participating farmers, in combination with the help of the organizers of this project, an unprecedented improvement in agricultural yields has been achieved.

A different way of growing

For a long time it was thought that fertilizers would be the solution for the production of more food. However, when the FFF method was introduced, it was discovered that fertilizers destroyed the soil. Enriched compost improves the soil and can generate the same yields.

The goal is to create food security
in Malawi and the special thing is that this works!
