Total LandCare (TLC) Malawi, a renowned development non-governmental organisation (NGO) with an annual budget of about K6 billion, says it is determined to continue improving lives of more people by using strategic approaches, which are owned and driven by communities.
TLC co-founder and executive director William-Trent Bunderson said this at a consultation workshop for staff and stakeholders who were reviewing and refining the organisation’s first five-year consolidated strategic plan in Lilongwe on Thursday.
He explained that the first corporate strategic plan in the organisation’s 15 years of operations is a merging of the many sector-based strategies in the TLC projects, which have focused on improving lives and livelihoods of rural farm families through sustainable agricultural practices and a sound management of natural resources.
“The strategic plan will now make us work with greater focus and with greater impact among the beneficiaries,” said Bunderson.
He noted that from only a handful of staff, TLC has now grown to a body of more than 200, with projects extending to Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania.
