With your help the WUMC Zimbabwe Team of 5 will be funding, building and seeding sustainable small school-farms with chickens, goats and cows in rural areas outside Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Through these school-farms, middle school students will learn how to care for livestock and how to create a business from the eggs and milk products that these animals provide.
It’s harder to learn anything when you are hungry. An immediate bonus is that these students who walk several miles to and from school will have food to eat while at school. Some students in these rural villages will have the opportunity to continue their formal education beyond middle school. A greater number will not. Our school-farms provide another path out of poverty and hunger. Students who graduate from these programs will leave with what they need to create their own farm, giving them a sustainable way to live and thrive in their villages.
Also, next to one of our farm sites is the new clinic that WUMC helped to build in 2017. On this trip Dr. Eric Weidmann, will spend a day seeing patients there. The clinic Nurse who will live on site will provide medical care after we leave. With enough project funding we hope to stock the clinic with some basic supplies.
A contribution of any size helps to save a life and build a future.
