4-H Zimbabwe has signed partnership with the Japan embassy in Zimbabwe in the establishment of 8 community gardens in Hurungwe West.
These gardens will be women led and will have a solar powered borehole supply to enhance climate change resilience innovations and to ensure food security and access to clean water for the Hurungwe community.
The Japan in Zimbabwe embassador Tanaka Satoshi said said “we like projects that address gender inequalities, we are therefore geared to support rural young women enhancing climate change resilience innovations that ensure food security.”
In October last year , the situating of these solar powered boreholes was done by the two parties in persuit to improve livelihoods and to mitigate the effects of climate change.
“Our target is to see enhance resilience in all the rural districts in Zimbabwe , we want to see communities having access to clean water and sustainable agriculture in the next five years,” said John Muchenje the 4-H Zimbabwe Director
4-H Zimbabwe is known for promoting gender equality through agriculture , and this initiative with the Japanese is likely to be a very huge success in development of communities.
