We have over 26 projects in communities in Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Botswana that focus on Community Empowerment, Education, and Nature Conversation. Some of the main challenges that we have identified in these three focus areas include unemployment, a lack of job opportunities, food scarcity, a lack of critical skills, poor education and health care infrastructure and resourcing, low school attendance, and dropouts due to financial constraints, wildlife poaching and preserving natural resources.
Through our Community Empowerment pillar and projects, we are actively investing in communities by addressing the following issues: unemployment and a lack of job opportunities, food scarcity in the community, and lack of skills. Our projects provide skills training and development, education programs on business and trade, arts, crafts, and goods manufacturing for trade as well as food security through community and school gardens.
This pillar is feeding the community, creating jobs for the unemployed, providing entrepreneurship training and opportunities that will enable the community to tap into additional streams of income as well as generate economic activity for the community. Funds raised go towards supporting our projects which include: the Mabanje community garden that aims to feed 45 families. The Vuche Vuche basket weaving and trade that is creating income and trade opportunities for vulnerable communities.
