Rural Family Nutrition Initiative in Zimbabwe

$8,918 $16,062
Raised Remaining


The project will enhance the nutrition and household security of 300 at risk families in rural Zimbabwe by providing home nutritional garden drip irrigation kits and agriculture training

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Zimbabwe is a country in crisis, with inflation at 1000%, the highest in the world. In this climate, families, many of whom are burdened with HIV/AIDS victims or orphaned children, find meeting their basic needs to be increasingly difficult. Many are reduced to dependency on their neighbors. ASAP will reach out to 300 families in Nyanga West District of Zimbabwe with the drip kits and training that will empower them with knowledge and tools to feed their families and generate income.

How will this project solve this problem?

ASAP will provide 300 Home Nutritional Garden Drip Irrigation Kits along with training in usage, maintenance of the kits, and permaculture techniques. Armed with new tools and skills, families will drastically enhance their quality of life.

Potential Long Term Impact

ASAP is providing communities with the knowledge and tools to meet their own nutritional needs and improve household security. In addition to the health benefits that better nutrition provides, this project teaches independence and self-reliance.
