Serving the most vulnerable      in rural Malawi
LATEST NEWS .... Donate now Winter 2014 Update July 2014 We’ve repaired 4 boreholes during the past few months - bringing clean, safe, local water back to many thousands Goat breeding has been disappointing, but last month  3 more kids were born including one female who is doing well, and  6 more does are due to kid over the next few months. Another successful food distribution during the hunger period 2013/14 provided enough maize for 175 vulnerable families - 663 people - during the whole 3-months. Of the 175 families fed, 145 of them are female-led. Hunger .... Visitors .... Goats .... Water .... 15 tonnes of maize were distributed, now our storeroom is empty and we need help refilling it.

RASC  Next Generation (the vibrant younger agricultural enthusiasts of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth) selected Open Hand Projects to feature in their Malawi Mission to explore Foreign Aid Initiatives - June 2014.

9 delegates from around the world - Australia, Canada, England, Scotland, Uganda as well as Malawi spent a memorable day in Chiringa, visiting our milk/phala project, boreholes we’ve repaired, community rabbit kholas, houses we’ve built for the vulnerable and judged at an OHP mini Agri Show, awarding prizes to excited local farmers for their produce. A touch chaotic as everything tends to be in Malawi., but a great success!

Just £5 (donated with Gift Aid)

will provide maize for 160 meals!

With only 12 vets in

the whole of Malawi, their invaluable input will not only help our guys but they’ll share with their neighbours in the vulnerable communities who rely on healthy livestock for food and income generation.
