The Malawian Red Cross Society and the Metrological Service recently worked in Mphunga, a community in Malawi. They discussed the facts about climate change and the need for adaptation. The effects of climate change have been increasing and rural areas of Africa are among the most vulnerable. As a result the villages decided to take action!

The Fantsuam Foundation is a rural-based non-governmental organisation which works with local communities to fight poverty through integrated development programs. Founded in 1996 by a group of Nigerian professionals who recognised the need to empower their rural community members, especially women. Through the Fantsuam Foundation they find the means of employment, generate income and meet their own development needs.
