MALAWI_PERMACULTURE PROJECT

THE STORY IN THE MAGAZINE NEWS FOR THE VILLAGE AGRICULTURE
AND FOOD SECURITY AND PERMACULTURE PROJECT

Written by: Mphatso Jafali

In 2015, the project of agriculture and food security was launched and has been implemented by Thuchila Youth Org in Mulanje District, Malawi with support and partnership with SFP, USA directed by Susan Johnson.

Malawi is one of African country which depends on agriculture as source of food and family income. For instant, maize/corn, beans, millet, sorghum and rice are some of staple foods in Malawi. In 2015 Thuchila Youth Org (TIYEPAD NETWORK) partnered with SFP charity organization based in USA to supply staple seeds crops including maize/corn, dried beans, cabbages, pumpkin, carrots, onions, egg plants, watermelon and many other seeds crops to vulnerable groups including people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, village women as well as school pupils. Since then over 5000 people in 18 clubs were benefited from the project which was distributed for communal, school and home gardens. The harvest of the crop yields which is also a positive impact/output of the project was for commercial and family food use and also nutritional supplement to people living with HIV/AIDS, orphans as well as community women. One of beneficiaries Charles Buleya who is also chairperson for one of club named Tiyamike support club which is among 18 supporting clubs recommends; “ It’s my  sincerely thanks to TIYEPAD NETWORK ORG for the wonderful project bring to our village, people living with HIV/AIDS always need nutritional supplements for the healthy and long live. After the project we are able to assist our family as well as orphans in our respective homes after we sell our crops other part with family vegetable foods. On behalf of Tiyamike Supporting Club I want to thank Youth Organization and I encourage them to continue their good work in our villages to ensure that people from the villages have enough family food and that are able to generate family income”.

It has been noted that the project which has existed for 5 years now will benefit to over 7000 people by the end of 2018. Currently more other seeds crops have been received and distributed to over 500 people in Chiradzulu District in areas where high prevalence of drought whereby many crops were dried up of short of rainfall.

The Director of the Organization, Jonas Fadweck said; “Let me thank our partners SFP for their continuous support to the project. This wonderful project has been benefited to many people including people living with HIV/AIDS, orphans, school pupil, indigenous farmers as well as village women in form of family food and income. I would also like to thank our partner from Australia for the donation of permaculture manual and DVDs which helped our farmers to understand better on how they can practice and improve better standards for the conducive environment learning. Lastly, let me request our partners to continue their support to Malawian villagers and we will continue to be transparent and accountable till we make the micro project doable”.

In 2017/2018 season many parts of Malawi have been affected by drought many crops dried up in many areas which will surely resulted into hunger in many other village areas.

PRINTERNET FIRST BORN IN MALAWI

How PRINTERNET was Born In MALAWI

Reported by: Mphatso Jafali

Malawi is one of lowest African country with low access to printer net services. Due to this value has contributed to high level of unemployment especially young people from rural areas which comprise more than half of the population. In accordance with data reviewed, only 2-3 people among 10 are access to printer net services in Malawi which retards the development of the country. As you may agree with me, things have changed all over the world regarding to technological studies. For instance, you can access to health education issues, trainings, job opportunities, printer net/computer studies and many more valuable issues via printer net services.

In response to this there have been created more Printer net Foundations in many countries including Malawi which is the only country to born the Printer net Foundation with support from Printer net New York.

The founder of Printer net Foundation Malawi is Jonas Fadweck, the Director of TIYEPAD NETWORK based in Malawi. The Printer net was discovered by Printer net New York on the Face book thread after seeing the work hard and positive active of the guy (Jonas) and it was started with the design and print of caps and T-Shirts to its 10 volunteers during the 9 years celebration of its existence with support from New York. Other Printer net activity was about the posters concerning HIV/AIDS which distributed over the community. The next step was the design and printing of wonderful Newsletter which also distributed over the community under 6 months micro projects. The last but not list is the current project of installed WIFI to the village which also shock the community leaders.”It’s so grateful to see my young people doing wonderful, unbelievable and recommendable work in my community and I promise to give these youths a land  to build their Printer net Telecenter Office” said Group Village Head Nkando.

The PrinterNet Was Born In Malawi in the District of Mulanje, in Thuchila area

PrinterNet Thuchila installed Wi-Fi a month ago. People from the villages are already using the wifi to access the internet, computing and video shooting. Today, school has started. Students are overcrowding in the office to learn how to study computer. The first study topic is how to understand a computer, how it works, types of computers and many more.

The second study topic is about Microsoft word, excel, power point, sage line 50 and internet. The trainer is Jonas Fadweck, the founder and leader of PrinterNet – Thuchila. The main goal of the training today is to equip young people with computer skills for easy communication, interaction and access to job and other opportunities via web. The 1 week training will help the students to access to free internet service and also help them to deal with other problems and also youth behavior change campaign as many youths will be busy in office rather than doing other bad acts.

The training will help the students to study computer, typing skills etc needed for school studies, social network communications, creation of jobs and many opportunities via web log in and able to learn how to raise fund on the web.

Given the high demand, our next challenge is lack of computer as we are using only one laptop  computer against 10 students.
