Describe the project's impact
Beneficiaries of the project are over 10 000 families that are in the catchment area of this rural community in the small-scale farming area of Wiltshire, in Mashonaland East Province, Zimbabwe. Gandami Clinic Health workers will also benefit as we have provided them with adequate personal protective equipment to combat COVID-19. The Wiltshire Community will benefit through adapting this unique approach of fundraising from among community members, enshrining the values of collective community action, unity, cooperation, and people living and working together. This approach will be replicated, not just to support the clinic, but also for other projects like improving the rural schools in the Wiltshire Community. Already, community members are coming up with different ideas of for other areas of focus that need collective, united community action.
