Vusumnotfo

Vusumnotfo - meaning "to restart the economy" - is a Swazi, Not-For-Profit, community training and support organization formed by eighteen chiefdoms in northern Swaziland. Our vision is that communities will be able and willing to improve their own social, economic, and environmental conditions. To build the human capacity needed to do so, Vusumnotfo's programming involves each of the community structures that touches the lives and development of children - the schools where they learn, the families where they grow, and the communities where they live. Using sustainable methods, Vusumnotfo's goal is to help communities, help their children, to reach their full developmenta...
Using Animal Care to Promote Empathy in Children
 
With your support, an education campaign and free, veterinary clinic will be conducted at Kandwandwe community in Northern Swaziland. This clinic will provide much needed veterinary services to 200 dogs. Combined with community wide education, it will support the care of, and companionship from, dogs - and how to use these to promote the development of empathy in rural Swazi children. Over time, the goal is to contribute to a reduction in Swaziland's high rate of domestic violence. project reportread updates from the field
Building a Preschool in Rural Swaziland
 
With your support Vusumnotfo will build a pre-school and a playground for children in the Nkamanzi Community in Northern Swaziland.Currently the pre-school operates outdoors; classes must be canceled frequently and the lack of a building limits teachers making full use of Vusumnotfo's in-service training for community preschool teachers. A well-constructed building will ensure that children are prepared for first grade, thereby laying a positive foundation for their school performance. project reportread updates from the field
Promote a love of reading in rural Swaziland
 
With your support, Vusumnotfo will convert a cargo container into a library for 5,000 preschool books (already donated). Currently, its 124-book library cannot fully support the 50 community preschools benefiting from Vusumnotfo's in-service training. An expanded library will ensure that all teachers can do activities daily that promote bilingual literacy and lifelong "reading to learn" habits in the 1,000+ children who annually attend these community preschools in rural Swaziland. project reportread updates from the field
