Foundations for Farming Winter 2020 Update

Headmaster and pupils with tools, seeds and more

We were back at the school this quarter and delivering more tools along with seeds and other materials required to maintain their Pfumvudza crop plots. The headmaster, staff and students have been diligently taking care of the space and (as you can see in the photo) the crops are really flourishing. The drip equipment is being maintained and there are plans to expand its use which would be a big boon to what could be produced.

On top of this we’re pleased that with a little help the school has constructed their layer chicken house. The pupils were very excited to receive the chickens and jumped right in to taking charge of looking after them. In the 5 weeks since they arrived the chickens have laid 241 eggs and now average one egg per chicken per day.

This is a very exciting moment for the school as, along with the crops which are growing, they now have eggs to sell with the funds able to help support the maintenance and expansion of the project as well as the school’s budget going forwards.

Thanks again to our donors and supporters. Did you know that GlobalGiving are match funding the first donation of any new monthly donors? Please consider helping to spread the word. Thank you.
