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 southeast Zimbabwe, Masvingo is home to 1.4 million people. 90% live in the rural areas where the majority are subsistence farmers living on less than $5.00 per day. The area is drought prone, with minimal and uncertain rainfall. Over 85% still use wood for cooking and almost half have no toilet facilities.
But there is hope. There are solutions that work. There is a path out of poverty.
Join us on the journey.
