To date 1,453 out of school adolescents have attended training in internal savings and lending and school fees have been provided for 904 or these young people. We are asking for your donation to provide hands-on vocational skills training to eager and worthy participants.

This project is part of a three year project partnership between ASAP and Catholic Relief Services in Zimbabwe. During these times of tight budgets, the funding for the vocational skills training portion of this project had to be cut – yet it is such an essential and vital aspect of this project that will provide children in desperate circumstances with hope for the future. Please give youth in Zimbabwe skills that will last a life time by supporting this project.

Harvests in Hard Times

Training by ASAP is essential for success

125 rural women are now able to harvest crops throughout the year in Zimbabwe, thanks to the home drip irrigation kits and training they have received through ASAP Africa. Nutritious fresh vegetables are being enjoyed, even now in August – four months into the cold, dry winter season! To state that these home drip irrigation kits have improved the quality of life is an understatement – they are actually a lifeline; a means for survival in a country that is experiencing unprecedented economic hardships. Please help strengthen this lifeline by contributing today.
