|Rotary club and Plan International bring mill to Malawi village|
The Rotary Club of Buxton, England, sought input from Plan International when undertaking a service project in Malawi. Staff from Plan's regional office in Malawi assisted by consulting with the community of Mankhangala to determine the type of project that would be most beneficial. The community opted for a maize grain mill because the nearest mill was 8 kilometers away, and the community needed an income-generating program.
Plan provided the Buxton club with a detailed budget and supervised the mill's construction. To raise the US$22,000 required for the project, the club sponsored a walk and held an opera gala. The mill became operational in November 2006 and benefits 300 households from five surrounding villages. More information and project photos are available on the Rotary Club of Buxton Web site.
