SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE INVESTMENT:
This once proud country that was the ‘bread basket of Africa’, exporting food to other countries, no longer produces enough to feed and clothe its own people. Zimbabweans desire the opportunity to return their country to agricultural sustainability. Many people in Zimbabwe have fertile land to use, but lack the seed and fertilizer to grow food. Hear Africa Foundation focuses on specific communities during the planting season to provide seed and fertilizer and also works with local leadership to develop management models that promote sustainable agricultural practices.
Zimbabwe is currently a country ravaged by economic crisis. It has significant shortages of basic human needs: food, shelter clothing. While Hear Africa Foundation is committed to sustainable investment, we also see it as our responsibility to provide the most basic of needs in times of crisis. We send regular shipments of food products out of South Africa and clothing from North America to Zimbabwe.
INVESTMENTS IN EDUCATION:
Hear Africa Foundation believes that the key to long term sustainable recovery in Zimbabwe is found in education. We partner with local schools to provide simple resources to promote learning and student success. We believe that by supporting teachers, students and local schools we will help grow tomorrow’s transformational leaders.
Due to HIV/Aids, Zimbabwe has an enormous number of orphans and at-risk youth. A recent report by Zimbabwe’s Senate claims there are 1.6 million orphans in the country. Hear Africa Foundation is supporting several orphanages and is investigating the potential of expanding our reach in this area.
