Livelihoods and Resilience

 

What we want to do:

We want to increase the number of children in Zimbabwe who are well nourished. We are working towards this by: 

Increasing household resilience, food security and nutrition.

What's the problem? 

Depleted natural resources, dependence on rain-fed agriculture, poor access to improved agricultural practices in response to climate change, poor access to input and output markets and affordable finance.

How is World Vision addressing the issues?

Through training and the provision of tools, we are partnering with communities to increase their crop and livestock production and helping communities to come together and work as a unit. We are also equipping families with skills and resources to participate in and/or start their own income-generating activities to increase and diversify their income streams, improving their abilities to provide for their families’ needs. 

Is what World Vision doing working?

Through Livelihoods interventions, World Vision helped improve crop production, access to food for 154,238 children including 221,565 adults as well as household income security in 2018.
