Animal Farming, Phase 1 – Pig Farming
This phase was predicated on the amount of food it will provide for the Mission as well as a source of income.
- Annual Goal: $15,000 90%
Construction of Water Wells
Lack of access to clean water causes an estimated 10% death rate.
The original 2014-15 Plan was to install 9 Wells in the 11 Villages at a cost of $7,000/Well.
As of 2017-18 Budget, 5 Wells have been installed with an increase in price to $11,000 (+36%) due primarily to unanticipated requirement for deeper Wells in the remaining remote villages.
- Annual Goal: $11,000 10%
Construction of Grain Storage Units
Maize (corn) is Malawi’s main staple food, grown and consumed everywhere in the country. Without adequate processing and food storage facilities, nearly 50% of the maize crop is lost after harvest.
As of 2017-18 Budget, two storage units have been installed and adapted to add storage of nuts and beans. The plan is to install two more storage units over the next two years.
- Annual Goal: $7,000 5%
