Food and Self-Reliance for 400 Orphan Families



AFCA will provide food for six months to 450 orphan families suffering from food insecurity, giving them strength to receive training on how to grow food and how to raise their own animals. AFCA will provide chickens, goats, pigs, guinea fowl, or sheep to orphan families, as well a training needed to become self-sufficient as they raise flocks or herds for their own consumption and to sell. This gives them a life skill and allows them to move towards self-reliability and sustainability.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Food insecurity is a big problem for most Zimbabweans, but it affects orphans even more. In the near past, the current government did not allow the import or distribution of food to Zimbabweans, while at the same time curtailing the provision of fertilizers for many years, effectively ruining crops and the supply of food. 450 orphan families will benefit from this project.

How will this project solve this problem?

Each orphan family will receive nutritious food, giving them strength to be trained so they can engage in a viable sustainable livelihood activity - growing food and raising animals to replace food distribution with sustainable livelihood.

Potential Long Term Impact

2250 children plus their guardians receive food and life-saving skills. This, in turn, will arrest the vicious cycle of hunger and food distribution year after year.
