With the $4,433 received to date, ASAP Africa will provide a home drip irrigation kit to one community leader in each of the 55 villages in Nyanga East district. This is where ASAP currently is carrying out a Village Savings and Lending project. This women will learn to install and maintain the kit as well as attend training in home nutritional gardening, perma-culture and sustainable agriculture techniques. This woman will establish a demonstration garden for her village and help ASAP Africa to identify the families affected by HIV/AIDS and those most in need, to receive the drip irrigation kit once we receive the remaining project funds.
March 22 is World Water Day! A great way to celebrate is to provide a rural family caring for orphans with the gift of household security and enhanced nutrition all year. Your $70 donation WILL change the life of one of the neediest families in rural Africa today. There is no life without water!
With 20 days left in 2006, ASAP has received a $25,000 contribution from an anonymous foundation. The total amount needed to achieve our funding goal for the Rural Family Health Initiative in Zimbabwe is now within reach – only $23,952.
With this new funding – the project training and transportation costs are now funded This means that 100% of the contribution you make to the project right now will go directly to benefit a rural family in Zimbabwe. There is no place in the world where the need is greater today.
Please help ASAP Africa to achieve our goal before 2007! Your contribution will truly put food on the table and improve the health and nutrition of one of the least fortunate families in rural Africa today.
Happy Holidays from all of us at ASAP Africa and may you be privileged throughout your life to serve those less fortunate.
ASAP Africa is eager to get started on The Rural Family Nutrition Initiative in Zimbabwe. Right now it is rainy season in Zimbabwe, and we are all praying for good rains and bumper harvests. Our goal is to have the 300 irrigation kits in place by the time the “skies close” in March 2007. To achieve this - the time to contribute to this worthwhile project is NOW.
The families that will receive training in agriculture, drip irrigation use and maintenance are located in remote, difficult to access rural homesteads. Due to high transport costs and fuel shortages in Zimbabwe, all 300 of these kits must be delivered at one time. We are pleased to have raised $1,718 thus far, but in order for the project to have the maximum benefits with minimum overhead costs, we must deliver all 300 drip irrigation kits to the families at one time - so please consider contributing today.
Your $70 Christmas gift today will bring a family food security all year long.
