The Mushroom and Bee Keeping Project is at the heart of the Tekeshe Foundation and our strategy in the fight to combat the underlying causes of poverty and poor health among disadvantaged rural women in Chipinge.
WHY THIS PROJECT IS VERY IMPORTANT
We strongly believe that improving the socio-economic status of women in the developing world is key to fighting and ending global poverty. They are the linchpins of their families, and therefore of their communities. With education, skills and basic resources, they can become catalysts for change. Women can help build a better world for all. When their livehoods are improved they can earn enough income and be in a better position to feed their faimilies, send their children to school and they will have access to better heath care.
Women’s health is very important in the fight against poverty. When a mother is ill and cannot work or care for her children, the whole family suffers. Basic health issues, from the dangers of unassisted birth to preventable diseases such as malaria, TB and AIDS put women and their families at terrible risk.
Together we have the ability to empower these women and put them in a better position to help their families. This holiday season as we go out and buy gifts for our friends and families let us take time to remember those who are less fortunate than us.
Best wishes and Happy Holidays!!!!!!
