HiHZim GEP project flourishing
Hand in Hand Zimbabwe (HiHZim) is heavily involved in projects that mitigate #Cimate Change through Green Enterprise (GE) Interventions.
For instance, the organisation was instrumental in establishing a GE pilot project in Gwanda, which has notched some positive impact in the area.
HiH Zim’s Chief Executive Officer recently toured Gwanda to have an appreciation of the project and was privileged to meet members of Progressive Self Help Group in ward 14, Phakamani and Sinalidau SHGs in ward 20 and Guyu in Sengezane Village.
The Groups have thriving tree nurseries in the hot and dry region, and plans are afoot for the teams to participate in this year’s national tree planting day in early December.
Since the Green Enterprise Project’s s inception close to 12 months ago, the project has established three apiaries, five lush tree nurseries, and five nutritional gardens with capacity to provide fodder for cattle and goat fattening.
The project has also created 490 green jobs and 34 green enterprises in the past year.
