Challenge

The Zimbabwean village Nhindiwa faces two major problems: 1) The geographical location of Nhindiwa makes it particular vulnerable to droughts. With global weather change, droughts have become more extreme and more frequent.This results in major food-insecurity of 350 villagers who live on nothing but subsistance farming. 2) The AIDS pandemic has led to high numbers of orphans. At least 70 orphans in Nhindiwa are presently not attending school because they can not pay tuition fees.

Solution

Our academic department conducted a needs assessment in the Nhindiwa region which was commissioned by Midlands State University. Based on the results, we will establish an irrigation scheme to provide water access for the households and fields of at least 350 villagers. The water will be taken from the near river Nhindiwa. At the same time, a product marketing programme with outreach and training units on farming and marketing methods will be established for the villagers.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide water access for at least 350 villagers and enable their efficient farming independent of seasons. At least 350 villagers will become food-secure and will be enabled to market their surplus products. The income gained will bring 70 out-of-school orphans back to school. We will permanently evaluate the implementation and impact of the project by established academic methods. This will ensure the effectiveness, long-term impact and sustainability of the measure.
