What's going on

Future plans already! – A new hope for bringing back the communal reserve…

With the excitement building up due to the success of the mushroom project, the Marange community is getting ready to take things a step further.

Follow up visit to Communities

This month of May, we made our community follow up visits to check on the projects. We are very excited about the developments in the communities. Mid- May marked the first mushroom harvests in the five communities with some giant mushrooms being harvested in Odzi.

Mushrooming mushroom houses in the communities

The month of April saw the communities gathering all they had to quickly put up mushroom production structures. All communities used what they had. In Kwekwe and old chicken coop was converted into a mushroom house.

Setting up Community Projects

Following the communities’ commitment in February – implementation of income generating projects in communities – we started providing the necessary basic materials to get the projects started.

December Training Follow-up and Inauguration of the CosmoGolem Project

This month we gathered all our participants from the December 2013 training for a follow up visit and to celebrate the official inauguration of our CosmoGolem project.

Official launch of the Future of Hope foundation in Zimbabwe

The 17th of February 2014 is a day to remember: many years of hard work from the whole team has finally culminated in the official launch of the Future of Hope foundation in Zimbabwe, the home country of Chido Govera.
