Green Institute was able to revive 3 (1 fence was rehabilitated) community gardens in Chipinge Ward 19 and 18 supporting 200 women especially survivors of Gender Based Violence and those affected by Cyclone Idai. The Institute worked together with Agritex officers for technical expertise. Each farmer was given a seed pack containing various vegetables in line with seasons. For sustainability purposes the farmers were first taught of farming techniques which are climate adaptive.
The idea of these community gardens was to economically empower women as they recover from the deadly effects of Cyclone Idai. If women are empowered cases of Gender Based Violence and Child Marriages are reduced.
