Across our projects the last few months have been some of the busiest we've ever seen.
In the Kanyaga region we have been training primary school staff and key community members on Climate Smart Agriculture. Taking knowledge back to their schools they've been farming as they never have before. Future months will see us report a school feeding programme where healthier students find it easier to stay alert in class.
In Bulawayo, Bubi and Umguza regions we are ramping up our birth registration with this month seeing us launch our biggest programme in years. Thousands of new-born babies are going to be registered. Tens of thousands of every age are going to learn and improve their actions and millions of Zimbabweans nationwide will benefit from stronger laws, policies and institutions. Human rights and life opportunities abound.
We are… in the thick of farming preparations with three excited primary schools all taking the jump into climate smart agriculture, where we aim to improve their school feeding programmes and build their climate change resilience.
We are… currently getting ready to start a new programme of sexual and reproductive health and rights for young people with a focus on HIV/AIDS, combined with life skills so that those who choose bodily autonomy have a better chance at earning and not being dependent on others making them vulnerable to exploitation.
We are… planning a massive programme of birth registration working across six wards, three districts and two provinces, tackling the root cause and helping vulnerable children and adults.
It has been an exciting time across our portfolio of urgent project work and with great success comes great responsibility both to deliver excellent projects and to find the remaining funding it takes to do so. Please helps us and thank you!

In the last few months all our partners have been busy delivering work in the communities they serve. Covering the whole of Zimbabwe, their geographical spread is as follows;
Rafiki Girls Centre: Take in vulnerable young women from in and around Harare, particularly the poorer districts. In addition, they actually take in some girls from hundreds of kilometres away. They achieve this by partnering with an organisation who helps the girls find local accommodation.
Trinity Project: Based in Bulawayo they work in Bulawayo Province and Matebeleland North Province. Particular areas of focus are the rural districts of Bubi and Umguza where poverty, food insecurity and other issues such as low birth registration are critical.
Foundations for Farming: Based on the outskirts of Harare they cover the whole country. Our most recent and upcoming work with them has been on three different schools in the rural Murewa district where farming is more achievable than some of Zimbabwe’s more arid regions, yet food insecurity and malnutrition is rife.
