Helping the people of Northern Malawi to help themselves out of poverty.
- The people of Northern Malawi are among the poorest in the world
- Many are subsistence farmers, relying on what they can grow to feed their family. Often they fail; there is nothing for them to fall back on in such circumstances.
- This leads to hunger. But there is food; it is just that they can’t afford it. The real issue is not hunger, but poverty.
- Giving food, or giving money, deals with the immediate problem. But this is only dealing with a symptom. The hunger will resurface next week, next month, next year.
The Bananabox Trust aims to deal with the real issue, which is poverty.
