Improving household food security in Mwanganya area through community involvement in Karonga District, Malawi

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), a group of community members agreed to improve their household food security situation during the hunger months with support from a multi-sectoral team of stakeholders. The community members from Mwanganya village in Group Village Mwandambo in Karonga District were assisted by communitybased government extension workers and community members to try some actions recommended in the national OVC standards to enhance their household food security and nutrition. Using the quality improvement methods, communities in Mwanganya village mobilised themselves to establish grain banks to improve food availability at the household level during the hunger months.
