Soils, Food and Healthy Communities

As part of an 11-day visit to Malawi to assess the food and agricultural security of the country at large, the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food visited the MAFFA office in its newest site in Dedza. A recipe day was held with many delicious (and nutritious!) dishes, and several project members had the chance to speak, including farmer promoters, staff and some collaborators from Chancellor College. In his report for the government of Malawi, the project was highlighted and cited multiple times as examples of possible improvements for the country at large! The report is included here:
