Where We Work
VillageWorx initial program is in Zimbabwe.
Once the breadbasket of the region, Zimbabwe now struggles to feed its own people. The challenges facing Zimbabwe include:
- Economic and political instability with an unemployment rate of 90%
- An AIDS epidemic that has decimated the country and left thousand of orphans
- A series of droughts creating shortages of food
- The lack of basic needs, such as clean water and sanitation, resulting in a cycle of poverty
VillageWorx, through their comprehensive approach, is addressing these challenges to provide a path out of poverty for the people of Zimbabwe.
Located in the southwest province of Masvingo, the District of Bikita is home to 165,000 people. 90% of the people live in rural areas and are subsistence farmers living on less than $4.00 per day. 92% have no electricity, 48% have no latrine and the average trip to get water is 1.2 miles on foot.
We are working with eight villages: Gurudza, Gwerkwe, Machiva, Maipisi, Mangoro, Muziri, Rutsate and Vunga to provide clean water, food security and business development opportunities.
There is hope. There are solutions that work. There is a path out of poverty.
Join us on the journey.
