Reprieve for Bulilima District
Hand in Hand Zimbabwe interventions are proving to be valuable in helping community members in Bulilima District, where there are limited opportunities due to persistent adverse climatic conditions.
Women from Thokoza Self Help Group have successfully built a market stall, which will not only shield group members from different weather conditions but will also see entrepreneurs selling their various wares in a clean, protected and modest environment.
Another group from the same district, Thembelani Self Help Group boasts of a thriving enterprise – a flourishing vegetable and tomato garden. Group members are gaining financial independence through selling their produce.
Other entrepreneurs in the district have set-up diverse enterprises such as detergent making, poultry production, and goat rearing businesses to mention a few. These enterprises have been fully supported through Hand in Hand Zimbabwe’s Community Upliftment Project (CUP) and Jobs Creation Programme(JCP).
