You helped us raise $2000 before August 5th in order to receive a MATCHING donation from doTERRA, a powerful essential oil company. Not only did we reach our goal of raising $4000 before our mission trip in the fall, but are on our way to raise even more money for our fall mission trip and 10 year Anniversary Celebration in Zimbabwe.
Our family in Zimbabwe has been battling livestock and wild animals as their crops are constantly trampled or eaten. Your donation will purchase material such as wire, fence posts, concrete, nuts and bolts for the new Community Garden Fence.
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.
