Farmer-to-Farmer is a USAID-funded initiative to send American agricultural/agribusiness experts to developing countries to offer technical assistance to our host organizations. These trips are volunteer-based, but with all expenses covered by CNFA, and typically last between two and three weeks.
Kangwere center is one of the five centers under Dzithandizeni women’s group, whose focus is improve the lives of women in the Mchinji region, Malawi, and to help them become economically independent. Women in the center are involved in several income generating activities including soybean production. Because these women have never received any formal training in soybean farming, the Kangwere Center requests assistance from a Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer to train the women on general practices for soybean production.
