Farm to Market
Zambia’s Mazabuka District is a remote area where people rely on subsistence farming, primarily of growing corn. The land is suitable for dairy farming, which can be more lucrative, but it’s so far from the local market that milk spoils during the journey.
In the past, commercial dairy farming really wasn’t possible. But that changed when World Vision worked with the local farmers to create the Munjile Milk Collection Center. This is a cooperative owned by the local farmers that collects enough milk every day so that a large dairy product company sends a big truck to collect it and take it to one of their major collection centers.
The cooperative provides a reliable income from dairy farming that has tripled the income of many of the farmers, and literally lifted them out of poverty.
