Many of the villages we serve in Zimbabwe are interested in having boreholes dug to ensure a steady supply of clean water during the long dry season.
Clean water for another 60 people every week
Our local staff in Zimbabwe build and install 6 Biosand Filters every week. Every filter provides a household of up to 10 people with clean water.
Building Food Security
Food security is chronically poor in Zaka due to recurrent droughts, poor farming practices, high unemployment, and political instability.
Biointensive Organic Farming
Families and communities learn how to develop highly-productive gardens that produce wholesome food year round.
Poverty is Dangerous
One of the greatest dangers of poverty is the ever-present risk of illness and death from disease. Compounding this is the almost complete lack of access to healthcare.
VillageWorx participates in the Healthy Homes Project—seven high-impact, low or no-cost interventions to break the vicious cycle of illness-malnutrition-poverty.
Breaking the Cycle
2 billion people worldwide have no access to financial services, and have no safe place for their savings. Breaking the cycle of poverty requires investment in microfinance.
VillageWorx trains people in “table banking”, a simple community savings and loan system that is making a big difference in the lives of families in rural Zimbabwe.
