Working with the community in Domboshawa in Mashonaland East Province, Zimbabwe to tackle poverty
We work directly with people in Domboshawa, Mashonaland East of Zimbabwe to create opportunities for sustainable living within their natural African culture. We raise funds to support the Chinamhora Community Centre in Domboshawa. The Centre provides training, resources, and equipment to help people start their own businesses, following fair trade principles. It also partners with the local community to find sustainable approaches to overcome challenges caused by poverty and climate change. The Centre accommodates a library which supports education with facilities for disabled children as well as providing access to the internet.
