The aim of the project is to strengthen the ability of poor, marginalised rural communities in Northern Malawi to achieve lasting food and nutrition security. The project will use a peer leader approach in 15 villages of Mzimba District, Malawi, teaching civic governance, climate-resilient agriculture and nutrition. Revolving funds will be established for irrigation, fertiliser and improved seeds, which will support higher agricultural productivity and crop range. The project will reach 855 households, an estimated 4,275 people. 60% of the peer leaders will be women. The project also includes an under nutrition pathway analysis.
