FEED THE FUTURE MALAWI AGRICULTURAL DIVERSIFICATION ACTIVITY
The Feed the Future Ag Diversification Activity is a five-year project that contributes to USAID/Malawi`s Feed the Future goal of sustainably reducing poverty and stunting in eight districts of central and southern Malawi (Mchinji, Dedza, Ntcheu, Balaka, Machinga, Mangochi, Lilongwe rural and Blantyre rural). The activity fosters inclusive and sustainable growth of Malawi`s agricultural sector.

The program is financed by the American people through USAID Malawi.
