According to “2021 Zimbabwe National Vulnerability Assessment Committee Report”, 60% of people face acute food insecurity of which 5.5million are in the rural areas. The initiative has a national impact partnering with the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Fisheries and Rural Development (MoLAWFRD) in addressing food insecurity, water shortages, rural development, reducing the vulnerability and building resilience to climate change in Zimbabwe. The organisation capacitated over 2 000 rural women farmers on low-cost community-based conservative and indigenous climate change mitigation strategies in Midlands (Chirumanzu rural district), Mashonaland East (Seke and Macheks rural districts), Manicaland (Buhera rural district) and Mashonaland West (Hurungwe rural district) Provinces. In addition, the organisation drilled 8 solar powered boreholes and establish 8 women-led nutrition gardens which directly benefited 400 women economically. The boreholes improved water security (availability, accessibility and quality of water) for 8000 people in Hurungwe district (200 households by 5 family members by 8 water centers) which were affected by water shortages. In addition, a total of 10 000 trees have been planted to date as a way of promoting agroforestry and reduction of greenhouse gases concentrating in tobacco farming regions (Mashonaland West and Central provinces) with highest numbers of tobacco farmers. The targeted is to reach all districts areas in Zimbabwe enhancing food and water security and building climate resilience to both rural and urban farmers.
