We don’t import ideas…we just improve on old ones!

As you know Planting A Future does way more than “just” planting trees. We are trying to help our community in every way we can. These are some of the brainchilds of our initiative to insure household food security. Isn’t it awe-inspiring to see the results?

Many people in and outside our community come to us for advice, for seeds or seedlings. We help as much as we can.

One of the people we support ist Davis Chibanje. The chibanje family benefits from our stream damming a lot. It allows them to water their veggies and that way produces more for their own food security and to sell at the market.

Planting A Future helped Davis and his family to build a small dam to store water for his crops, household use and animals.

They also recieved some of the veggie seeds from us. Thanks to the dam Davis is now able to produce more tomatoes, cabbages, carrots and beans.

But not just Davis is excited about Planting A Future and their work for the village community. Also the village Headman Siazwenaabo is very impressed by what we achieve and do.

But just have a look at the dam we built! I mean…who would not be impressed? 😉 Simple, but serves its purpose very well and improves people’s lives.
