About TAPP?

TAPP was initiated by Malawian nationals committed to the development of the agriculture sector in Malawi with broad background of animal production, gender, youth, marketing and Environment.

These professionals were originally concerned with the low livestock production in the country compounded by a number of interlinked factors including: the reduction of the genetic pool of all livestock species, the stagnation in agricultural production; inadequate food and rampant poverty to sustain the livelihoods of the Malawian population – in particular the rural populations, Environmental degradation, limited involvement of women and the youth to sustain food production and contribute to poverty alleviation, limited financial resources to increase food production and sustainable livelihoods, limited integration/interrelationships in farming and food production.

It is in this that Trustees of Agricultural Promotion Programme (TAPP) was constituted.

TAPP initial vision was to become the most transparent and accountable development based NGO in Malawi. Its mission was to contribute to reduction of poverty, food insecurity, malnutrition and ill-health through multi-disciplinary and integrated approaches to agricultural practices that efficiently utilize natural resources. TAPP was built upon the following values and principles: self-reliance and sustainability; transparency and accountability; improved animal production, nutrition, income, gender (HIV and AIDS) and the environment; ‘pro-poor’, poverty-focused development; full and genuine participation; true partnership/ networking; community and stakeholder ownership of projects.
