CR are raising money to support a schools gardening project in the Masvingo diocese in Zimbabwe. This is a very dry and poor area, the rural people of Zimbabwe live constantly with the fear of crop failure. When this happens there is simply no food, except what Aid organisations can bring in.
The project will create vegetable gardens at four schools, enabling them to grow their own produce. Children especially need good food so that they can grow up healthy. They need regular food so that they can walk long distances to school and have the energy to pay attention in class. Education is their one hope of escaping the poverty trap.
Brethren, students and friends of CR have been undertaking various challenges to raise money for this project.
