The overall purpose of the intervention is to strengthen food security conditions for the rural population in Lupane, targeted through four selected primary schools. This will be achieved through 1) establishment of sustainable garden production, 2) distribution of livestock and 3) rehabilitation and/or establishment of watering points. The activities in this application directly address a reported and expressed need for improved food security for the rural population of Zimbabwe, making it appropriate, timely and relevant. Food insecurity is mitigated by establishment of a sustainable food production, and will focus on a nutritious diet and establishment of possibilities for off-season crop production through greenhouse facilities. Targeting the schools provides an efficient framework for reaching a particularly vulnerable demographic group in the rural areas, namely children, and provides security and protection in an otherwise uncertain situation.
