This year marks NAP Africa's 10th year of service in Zimbabwe Africa. Our travels have returned from their mission abroad with stories of hope and plans for the future of NAP. As we unfold these new ventures we would like to reflect of the past 10 years and celebrate our successes.
Funding for our ongoing projects would not be possible without our amazing team of supporters. Our NAP community gave us the opportunity to build a water windmill pump as well as a new borehole, gave students a place to study and the opportunity to take exam testing needed to advance in school, provided medical care to hundreds of people, supported a community agriculture progect as well as a storefront for local business.
Aside from these projects, NAP Africa members have provided the most powerful message we all need, "There is hope and people do care about you."
We thank every person and organization that has given us this opportunity to give back.
NAP Africa is dedicated to bringing much needed hope and possiblity to rural villagers in Zimbabwe. This year we have renewed our comitment to assist the Jabulani Village of Victoria Falls in areas of education, food production, water accessability, healthcare, and self sustainability. With your help we will make this the most successful year ever!
Even $10 per month can assure continued support for our friends in Africa.
The CRISIS 2015:Zimbabwe is considered a low-income, food-deficient country, ranked 156 out of 187 develping countries on the Global Hunger Index, which measures progress and failure in the global fight against hunger.
Zimbabwe has highly volatile food prices, which can increase by more than 30-40 percent in a season. Price instability, especially during the lean season, compromises households' ability to access adequate food year-round through markets.
Nearly 28 percent of children under age five in Zimbabwe are stunted, or have heights too low for their age, as a result of chronic malnutrition. More than half (56 percent) of all children between the ages of 6 and 59 months suffer from anaemia. Less than a quarter (17.3 percent) of Zimbabwean children between the ages of 6 and 23 months receive the recommended minimum acceptable diet for adequate nutrition.
NAP Africa has dedicated time and funds to help aid our friends in Zimbabwe but we can't do it alone. Funding from our organization assists in direct food purchases as well as providing supplies for the success of our community garden project in the Jabulani Village.
Hope and Possibility begins with YOU!
Ndebele Art Project is a 501.c.3 US charity formed to address the urgent needs of the Jabulani carving artists and their families living outside of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Africa. These villagers are simple people, living without electricity or running water. It is a joy to see these talented artists thrive, yet heart-breaking to witness the slow, painful destruction of their health and well being. It is our hope and prayer that you will join us in 'carving a brighter future' in the Jabulani Village.
