Many people in Malawi in East Africa rely on farming small plots of land to produce food to feed their families. But some have often gone months without enough food to eat.

With the support of Australian aid, Caritas Australia has been working with vulnerable communities in Malawi and Tanzania to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity. By recognising their visions, skills and resources, communities have been able to help improve their own lives through sustainable development practices.
These videos show how a community in Malawi has used their own strengths to build essential items, which help improve hygiene, sanitation, food security, nutrition and their everyday lives.
Videos made in collaboration between Caritas Australia and CADECOM (Caritas Malawi), assisted by John Reed from the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle Australia, with support from Australian aid through the AACES program (Africa Australia Community Engagement Scheme).
