Land O’Lakes International Development aims to take a light touch approach in helping to develop strong, functioning value chains. In Malawi, most families rely on farming to make a living, but poor infrastructure, high input costs and limited areas of land for cultivation have contributed to high food insecurity in certain areas. Since 1999, our programs in Malwai have worked to increase income from farming while enabling better nutrition for families while also assisting with business development for private sector input providers. The success of a previous program, the Malawi Dairy Development Alliance program, and participants involved in a current Food for Progress program are detailed in this video.
