ASAP will train 24 rural Cluster Facilitators (CF) for 3 days in permaculture, growing and using medicinal herbs and general health issues. These facilitators will then form local health clubs in their respective areas and train 12,000 people in these same health issues.
Life in rural Zimbabwe can be terribly difficult with life expectancy only in the upper 30's. This is due to a lack of health training at schools in the rural areas. The first 5 years of a child's life is crucial with early childhood death a common occurrence. Nutrition at an early age is critical.
ASAP will conduct a 3-day Health workshop for 24 women CFs on how diseases spread, nutrition, permaculture, growing and using medicinal herbs and general health issues. The CFs will then cascade the knowledge to at least 12,000 women in their home villages.
Over 12,000 villagers will be trained in ways to improve their nutrition, their health and their children's health. This will have an immediate impact on the general health of the rural area with fewer early childhood deaths.
