SUICIDE CASES SPIKE IN FIRST QUARTER OF 2023, MEN MOST AFFECTED
ACTION AID MALAWI LAYS OUT PLANS TO SUSTAIN INTERVENTIONS UNDER ‘BETTER’ PROJECT WHEN IT PHASES OUT
By Jecina Chikwelete
Action Aid Malawi has said it has already put in place some sustainability plans for farmers to continue what they have been taught if BETTER projects phase out.
The remarks come after only a few months remain before a five-year Kulima BETTER project phases out in December 2022.
Speaking with Timveni news desk, Kulima BETTER project coordinator at Action Aid Malawi Grecian Kamnyamata said their organization has reached 97% of its target.
According to Kamnyamata, through the project, farmers have established village savings, loans groups, and farmer field schools where farmers have been learning different farming methods.
Kamnyamata also added that the project involved government agriculture structures at the District level so that they can continue after the project phases out.
The project, which has been funded by European Union through Self help Africa, started in 2018 and Action Aid has been implementing the project in Nkhatabay and Chiladzuru.
