Feed 100 Orphans & Vulnerable Children Zimbabwe

by Creating Better Futures


Hunger affects rural Zimbabwean children's health, growth & ability to learn. CBFUK sends orphans & vulnerable children to school; most of them are at risk of starvation. This farming project will help their families to grow their own food & have a balanced diet. We will train 5 farming coaches with Foundations for Farming. They will teach the local community sustainable farming methods to grow crops on time, on standard, without wastage. We will provide packs of seeds, fertilisers and tools.

Cheza is a small rural community north of Harare in Zimbabwe, most of the community do not have the skills and resources to grow enough food for their families or farm their land sustainably. As a result, 92% of the children at the local primary school are undernourished, which not only affects their health and growth, but also their ability to attend and concentrate at school. We provide a feeding programme, but the community wants to develop the skills to sustainably help themselves.


In partnership with local farming experts, Foundations for Farming, we will provide sustainable farming training for 5 Community Champions. They will share their knowledge with the local community, to enable them to be able to farm more effectively and sustainably. We will also provide the resources to get them started, which includes basic farming tools and a starter seed and fertiliser pack which in combination with the new skills will allow them to feed themselves for a year.

Long-Term Impact

This project benefits 20 families and 100 children, providing improved diets during the project period, through a range of nutritious foods they have grown themselves, this will help their general health, growth and will enhance the children's ability to concentrate at school, thus improving their future opportunities. Additionally, they will have developed the life long skills (and have the tools) to farm effectively and sustainably, thus improving health well beyond the project period.
