More than ever do we need your help to support the Mahenye Shangaan community living around Gonarezhou National Park in becoming food secure, which is the main objective of the nutrition gardens with Shangaan women.
We started developing these gardens to provide diverse and nutrient-rich vegetables to women and their families. A few families have now started to grow a healthy production of vegetables which is described as a very encouraging success "since the Mahenye Garden was commissioned it has been a great success, providing a range of good quality vegetable for local consumption" said one of the elders in the village.
There is no doubt that improving local livelihoods through adequate nutrition and food security is associated to positive wildlife conservation outcomes. As black rhinoceros have just been re-introduced in the Gonarezhou National Park, it is now vital to support Mahenye community to preserve their exceptional natural heritage, fo which they are the true custodians.
