Lessons from Malawi’s Shire Valley. A special website design project.
Kasinthula is owned by 762 smallholder farmers. In 1997 they pooled their land to create the Kasinthula Cane Growers Association (KCGA) and turned their largely unproductive fields into a commercial sugarcane scheme. A few years later they found themselves still in huge debt with no sight of a way out. This is the story of the turnaround of Kasinthula cane fields through successful investment and improved management.
This was a website design with a lot of good images but also a huge amount of text. In order to keep the text interesting it was broken down into bite sized chunks. Overlaying the images with the text created a very attractive page and ensured that every single piece of content was able to be included. There are a couple of videos on the page along with some nicely displayed statistics.
