A Visit in Chinkonono Village

Whoa…now look at that!!! Somebody made a new photo slideshow of Bruni’s visit and impressions of Chinkonono Village, PAF activities and the warmth and joy of our Zambian community!

 

Check the slideshow to get a glimpse of what Bruni experienced and of what is going on for Planting A Future with the new breadfruit seedlings, the first building of our new community center, the first moringa harvest, our village primary school and all our lovely PAF members 🙂

It is definitely worth 9 minutes of your time…we will take you on a little break from reality and invite you to join us in the middle of nowhere, far away from all stress and hectic.

Now lean back and enjoy! 🙂

Please share if you like what you see! Spread the word!

A Visit in Chinkonono Village

Hard Work pays off…people who deserve some help

In our society women have the task of finding food for the family. It is quite hard as they have to tag along to nature in that quest for food for their kids. When it is dry season they feed their kids on dried pumpkin leaves, dried okra and a some fresh fish they catch with reed baskets in shallow water. In the rain season they collect Mpububu’biden schimperi’, mushrooms, pumpkin leaves and  wild okra. These women are resiliant and so hard-working. Planting a future will make sure each home has a Moringa tree for relish and medicine.

A miracle for Patrick! He can’t believe his luck. Breadfruit has the key to save his family from hunger.  Patrick is now one of our volunteers and is so passionate about the project.

What a fruit...

School feeding … the status quo

As you all know feeding kids at school is important. We try to improve the already existing by providing fruit trees to schools.

Check what school feeding in Zambia under WPF (World Food Programme) looks like right now: nsima and cow peas. Sounds plain and boring? Maybe. But for lots of children it is all they eat for the whole day.

School feeding programme food: nsima and cowpeas....for 456 kids.

Objective:

  • To raise a breadfruit nursery and distribute them among vulnerable households as a means of mitigation hunger.
  • To grow Mangoes, Pawpaws, Guavas and Bananas to supply vulnerable households, schools and clinics around Kauwe, Nampuyani, Nguba and Singwamba with fruits in order to improve nutrition.

We just have to do it for those poor and hungry old men, women and kids because we know what it means to be hungry and poor. The rich dont understand it because they have never been hungry.
