Concern Worldwide is running a conservation farming programme in Malawi and Zambia.
This work is being supported by Accenture, who awarded us with a grant of $1.5 million. This is a fantastic opportunity for Concern and will no doubt allow us to build on the success we have had in this area in Zimbabwe.
In October 2013, Accenture awarded Concern Worldwide with an additional grant for this project.

Revolution in farming
Concern Worldwide is training people in farming techniques which are easier, cheaper and increase yields for farmers. Read more about these methods.
