This Citizens` Budget (Bajeti ya Nzika) gives a short description of how funds coming to Thyolo district from the Malawi government budget for July 2017 to June 2018 are shared out and managed. Each year, central government meets its obligation to provide various services to the people with the aim to reduce poverty. These services include: Health, Education, Agriculture and Water & Sanitation. For these services to be delivered, money is needed. Therefore, the Government sources funding for these various activities. Every year the Government of Malawi produces a plan that explains how they will source these funds, and how they will use the money they have sourced in the various parts of the country. Part of the funding is distributed among 35 districts (including Thyolo district). The districts prepare a list to show how this money will be used.
