We started fish conservation in Africa in 2011 in Nkhata Bay District of Malawi. Called Fish for Tomorrow, we built on our experience of community led forest conservation in Malawi. We developed a simple approach which we trialled along a 40 km area of lakeshore in the District. It was so successful that communities wanted this approach and we are now working in three Districts and protect 300 km of lakeshore.
Our sweet potato farming project is a simple and sustainable approach to overcome malnutrition, a major health issue for mothers and children in Malawi. We are helping farmers to grow improved varieties of orange-fleshed sweet potatoes – high yielding, rich in Vitamin A, and they taste good too!
We introduced the fuel-efficient cookstove in Africa to communities in Malawi to provide a safer and more sustainable alternative to the three-stone fire.
