Temwa Luhanga – Thazima Soya Milk Production

Date grant awarded: April 5, 2019

After a visit to Nyika National Park, Temwa Luhanga was inspired to raise awareness on animal milk production and the effects it has on the animal, person, and environment. It was here where Temwa learned that the park is losing 26% of its animal population due to poaching. Furthermore veterinary departments in the Mzuzu community record that 40% of domestic animals are slaughtered by the heads of household, 25% are used for rearing, 25% for farming practices, and 10% die from diseases. These numbers helped Temwa establish the Thazima Soya Milk Production so that individuals in the community can access proteins from soya.
