There is so much hope for what 2016 has in store for the people and communities Living Foundation is working with in Zimbabwe!
In the top left photo are Collin (our secondary teacher), Phonette (the agricultural graduate overseeing our agricultural project), Nomagugu (Fort Rixon young woman working in the project and who will be preparing lunch for the secondary students) and Tatenda, Living Foundation Director in Zimbabwe. They are on some of the land that has been prepared for planting.Top right are Tatenda, his wife Liz and their baby girl, Antoinette.
The lady in the photo middle left is Naomi who belongs to the Sisonke sewing group meeting in Tatenda and Liz’s home in Bulawayo. The Sisonke ladies have just made this maid’s uniform with a view to marketing them. You’ll notice the hem hasn’t been done yet. To give a professional finish to the uniforms we need a blind stitching machine which is about $1000 Australian. We also need money for fabric. I wonder if you would like to contribute to this. We don’t have funds available at the moment! Liz is going to Harare (the capital) next week to market Sisonke products. Tatenda asks us to pray for these meetings. Sisonke is making real progress towards becoming an independent business. They have the products and the standard and markets are increasing – but at this stage funds to fully equip them are vital.
Middle right – our Op Shop, Zibusiso (Blessing) in Vasse – happy customers!
Bottom level – decorated birds that are displayed on the fence at Word of Mouth Country Living Shop in Nannup. An undecorated bird is $20 to buy, you decorate them and return them for display to draw attention to Living Foundation! The money adds distance to our Five Cent Trail going from Nannup to Busselton. 5 cent pieces laid in a line a metre long = $2.60 …. so $20 goes about 7.7 metres further towards Busselton!
