We are pleased to welcome Malawi Fruits as an institutional member. This Scottish Charity is committed to working with partners in Malawi to establish and grow sustainable community businesses in the north of the country. They aim to provide start-up finance, training and support to agriculture and related community enterprises. Malawi Fruits encourages smallholder farmers to see their smallholding as a business and provides support and training to help develop these fledgling businesses, so that farmers can maximise their income and provide for the education and healthcare needs of their families. Kevin Simpson, would be pleased to hear from TAA members with interests in Malawi , he and colleague Charles Howie joined a TAA event in Edinburgh in 2015 organized by John Ferguson, our convenor for Scotland.
