You might wonder how a tiny pea could change someone’s life. Yet pigeon peas are giving poor farmers like Frank hope for a better future.

These high-protein peas can be lifesaving. But sadly, farmers in Malawi are struggling to turn their peas into profit. Unscrupulous middlemen are exploiting farmers like Frank and driving prices right down.

Help for farmers like Frank

Our partner is bringing pea farmers in Malawi together into Farmer’s Clubs, where they support each other and get trained to negotiate fair prices for their crops.

Something so simple is making an incredible difference. Through the Farmer’s Clubs, we’ve already helped 5,000 farmers to realise their God-given potential, to secure a stable income and thrive.

At Harvest, we all reflect on the food we’re fortunate enough to have on our tables. With your support, the poor farmers in Malawi will be able to create a plentiful bounty for their own families, both now and in the future.
