African Poultry Project for Women
Sunflower harvesting has a long history; human beings have included them in our diet to augment animal feed. The women of the project manually harvested sunflowers using traditional methods. The project continues using permaculture farming techniques to empower women and improve their lives and their families.
The Zimbabwe Farm Project is dedicated to making the world a better place than the one into which we were born. We use 100% of all donations to fund aid initiatives in a rural farming community in Mazowe. We are a philanthropic 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization founded in 2016 by a social entrepreneur with a heart for Africa and a desire to improve the lives of women living in rural agrarian communities. As a daughter of Africa who spent her childhood years in Nigeria and Tanzania, it was vital for her to provide opportunities to women that were denied to her as a child because of her gender, which subjected her to the limitations of the societal construct in which she lived. The organization’s foundation is rooted in Pan-Africanism and a passion and commitment to the people of Africa. She and the Zimbabwe Farm Project team work tirelessly to administer projects that promote African peoples’ empowerment and self-determination. From these meager beginnings, when we privately funded the mission through family and friends and donations from supporters, the project has provided employment and food security to hundreds of women, enabling them to financially support and uplift their children and families. We are a growing but decentralized international team that works closely to build collective power for change through self-sufficiency and empowerment initiatives. We create sustainable solutions to address food insecurity through employment and women’s empowerment initiatives for people living in a rural agricultural community. Our mission promotes direct interaction within the local economy to create financial independence in balance with donor support.
Such a pleasure to have hosted ‘Print the Love,’ a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free photos to people in underserved communities throughout the world. They gave the gift of photos to the women and children living in the local community. Each woman received a photo of themselves and their children giving them memories that they can be cherish for a lifetime. The joy they brought through the simple gift of giving was definitely a reminder of the best in all of us! This summer we will be hosting another group from a non-profit that is doing phenomenal work addressing the nexus between mental health and nutrition. We hope to coordinate their visit around harvest season so that participants can have the pleasure of planting.
