Communities should collectively organise themselves, embrace sustainable healthy food and income generating projects, this publication can establish.
In a resilience and community asset research program, this publication learnt how a communal fish project managed to transform the general living standards of previously poverty stricken peasant farmers at the margins of Zvishavane and Mberengwa areas.
In an interview with this publication Summerset Director, Simbarashe Siakalangu stated that the projects have now covered more than 10 Wards and attracted the support of some global organizations including ADRA.
“We have established fish projects in more than 10 wards within Zvishavane and Mberengwa. Some of the wards include Mutambi ward 17, Tavekumberi ward 15, Mhondongori ward 5, Hlabekani Ward 12 and Vaka ward 10. In Mazvihwa, we partnered with ADRA ZIMBABWE and we did viable fish ponds at Gwenombe Langwani Primary school and Mpasi community garden along Ngezi River,” said Siakalangu.
