Goats for Zero Hunger

Project Location: Goromonzi, Zimbabwe
Project Leader: Takudzwa Chinotungamira
Global Task Force Team Members: Zubair from Media and Design team

Project Description

After the government’s land reform program, conditions worsened. Production was reduced and most of the farm workers became unemployed – some of whom travelled from countries as far away as Malawi, Zambia and Mozambique to find work. Now, many rely on small, labour jobs to support themselves and some are forced to travel to Harare in search of a better living.

Goats for Zero Hunger is working to give the vulnerable people of Goromonzi essential equipment, skills, knowledge and capital to start goat farming initiatives.

Challenge

Unemployment and poverty of people in Goromonzi due to the government’s land reform.

The Solution

The Goats for Zero Hunger project aims to support the Goromonzi people by providing them with work and food.

Project Leader Bio

Takudzwa Chinotungamira

Takudzwa is a young man who grew up in communities that faced a lot of challenges including hunger which did not offer so much in terms of support and development opportunities to young people and vulnerable families. Therefore, his upbringing helped him to understand more the needs and the better suitable ways required to address the situation at hand .The passion to succeed has led him to do various researches while working hand in hand with community leaders such as churches, herdman and family elders to find ways and more practical means to tackle these problems being faced by the communities they live in and have since found the goats project as a way to address the problem as a long term solution.
