Sparkle Malawi has requested USD 35,000 to purchase a plot of land to build a farm to not only feed the 300 children they support but also as a means of educating the children and reduce their annual food bill by 10%. The local community will also learn about permaculture and crop rotation to improve their subsistence farming methods.
