When Godfrey Chikwakwa married Joyce White 24 years ago, little did he know that she would employ him. With help from a Village Savings and Loans Association - supported by the PROSPER programme - Ms White has successfully started her own small business.
For decades, Malawi has been experiencing devastating disasters including floods, dry spells, and pest outbreaks. These disasters have destroyed people’s livelihoods. Here's what the PROSPER programme is doing to bolster people's resilience.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has received a £4.5 million contribution from the Government of the United Kingdom to provide cash assistance to people facing severe hunger in Malawi.
PROSPER works to build the resilience of households and communities, strengthen shock sensitive social protection, expand climate smart agriculture, reduce exposure to hazards and risks, and achieve food and nutrition security, by diversifying and improving income generation and economic opportunities.
