The Victory Garden Campaign is a 2-year project to help subsistence farm families in Malawi, who are plagued by constant drought, floods, economic instability, and poor agriculture policies, grow more food by teaching them to create gardens by their homes. The Campaign aims to help save 150,000 people from hunger in Malawi, one of Africa's poorest nations.
The Campaign's villagers are mostly subsistence farmers who make less than 70 cents a day. Inspired by the successful garden campaigns of World War I and II, home victory gardens are small, lush plots that produce food throughout the year, allowing families to gain food security, improve nutrition, increase income, and reduce the risk of relying on one crop.
Your support covers the costs of garden workshops in new communities, but at no cost to the villager. By training local people to be garden facilitators, the Campaign enables communities to be their own agents of change, ensuring long-term, sustainable success in the war against hunger.
