Hundreds of families in Chiweshe have benefited under a nutritional garden project launched in Mazowe Central constituency in line with ZIM ASSET food and nutritional cluster.
The shortage of vegetables will soon be a thing of the past in Chiweshe as the Mazowe Central constituency legislator Cde Tabetha Kanengoni-Malinga in partnership with a local non-governmental organisation have launched hunger mitigatory measures, chief among them the nutritional garden which will see hundreds of families growing horticulture crops at both household and commercial level.
The local NGO, Rufaro Nenyasha, representative Dr David Mudimba donated vegetable seeds to the village heads and youth leadership for distribution to the beneficiaries to kick-start their nutritional gardens and fight hunger.
Under the collaborated projects unveiled at Shutu Primary School by Cde Kanengoni-Malinga, who is also the Minister of state in Vice President Mphoko’s office, and the local NGO, 100 vulnerable orphans and elderly people received clothing hampers, disadvantaged children received school uniforms, whilst a borehole was dug at the school which was about to be closed due to the water problem.
A 50kva transformer that services both the primary school and a clinic adjacent to it was pledged by Rufaro Nenyasha.
