The Wealth in the Soil Project is working with unemployed people on the outskirts of Zimbabwe’s capital Harare and Bulawayo to establish income generating gardens, access more profitable markets and improve household nutrition. Ongoing internal conflict means many community groups have been displaced and made vulnerable within a failing economy, while almost a third of Zimbabwe’s population are undernourished.

8 out of 10 Zimbabweans are unemployed.

32% of Zimbabweans have stunted growth.


Friday’s Story

Friday is a father, a farmer and a poet. He stands on the edge of his plot, reflecting on a history of hunger brought on by his family’s poverty. “I am excited about the future,” says Friday. “I can see my daughter getting an education and I am planning to put a little aside each week so I can afford to have driving lessons. Then, I will work as a driver and my wife will care for the garden.” Though the future is still uncertain, he and others working with ADRA, now have hope. Together they are building a brighter, healthier and hunger-less future.
