HOW WE GIVE BACK
We are always involved in community-benefiting projects that aim to uplift farmers. Farmers are at the heart of our enterprise and they play a crucial role in every society. That’s why their well being is our priority.
Our efforts extend to the larger part of the community as well. Over the past decade we have donated hybrid seeds and other commodities to different vulnerable and underprivileged communities in Malawi. We have also provided free training and follow up services to small scale farmers in rural areas to expose them to better farming practices.
“Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.
– Ben Carson
