Technology and success in Kenya and Malawi
Hunger is a major problem and the reasons for it are varied and complex. Traditionally, humanitarian organisations often dealt with the problem by providing people with food aid.
The thinking around hunger has evolved and so too have the solutions; as is the case with some of Concern’s projects in Malawi and Kenya. Technology has been a major reason for their success, with mobile phones and mobile cash machines playing a part.
We have videos that tell the full stories below.
Also, a new report, entitled “Innovations in the Design and Delivery of Social Transfers: Lessons Learned from Malawi”, adds more depth and information. Read report.
