Micronutrient deficiencies among children under five years in Rumphi, Malawi are high, with a staggering 46 percent of children being stunted and 21 percent being underweight. Jane Mhango Mwambila has established the Chuma Mnthaka Project, translating to money in soil, an agribusiness project aimed at promoting agricultural productivity and sustainable management of environmental resources. The project intends to support identified households with start up farming inputs alongside training on organic fertilizers.
