Aiming Higher in Malawi (AHIM), in partnership with Female Education & Empowerment Centre, is looking to significantly raise the livelihoods of 420 Guardians with 420 children with disabilities and 2500 of their siblings in rural Mulanje South West and Thyolo East. The main aim of the project is to increase agricultural productivity and strengthen climate resilience of the guardians by promoting kitchen gardens, small scale irrigation and using locally constructed shallow wells. The project looks to reduce poverty and increase food security and in the longer term, this project will lay the foundation for plans to introduce livestock to the community and move the focus towards income generating activities, and selling surplus produce for a profit.
