Tafika is a Malawian organization and we try to find ways to generate funds locally to reduce the dependency on donors. 

 

We have a number of Income Generating Activities (IGAs) which sustains the running of the projects.

 

These IGAs include the following:

 

1. PLANTING A COMMERCIAL  FOREST & TOMATO GREENHOUSES

 

We have completed a commercial forest project (May 2022) which, in 13 years time will generate the money we need to become self sufficient. You can read about it here.

Our forest project has now been written about in a South African publication - you can read the article here. It has also been written about in Scottish Forestry Magazine and you can read that article here.

2. BECOMING A LANDLORD

 In June 2022 we started a project to build a Student Hostel. The hostel is now open for business. This is a commercial venture which should see us generate cash to fill the gap between now and the Commercial Forest Project revenue stream. 

3. MILLING MAIZE

Running a maize mill (at below markets costs) for our community members.

4. EGG PRODUCTION

Hatching eggs using a donated incubator for sale in Malawi.

 

We are always on the look out for new ideas as we want to be able to fund our activities in a sustainable way. Please contact us if you have any good ideas for sustainable income generation.
