Zimbabwe Project on Our Okanagan:

 

 The Zimbabwe Project is a collaboration of people who donate their time and skills to help

 those who are less fortunate in Zimbabwe, Africa. 

 

 We continue to work with local Zimbabwean organizations. Projects vary from village to village as individual needs present themselves. Our goal is to help these communities

 become self sustaining, through various projects such as pig and poultry raising, tree farming, gardening, sewing, carpentry,etc.

Working with the schools in the rural communities is essential for building strong leadership

 for future generations. Our soccer teams provide oppurtunity for positive activity for the local youth as well as the opportunity to work in our self sustaining projects. These activities provide a sense of hope and opportunity or the entire village.

Zimbabwe Dinner and Dessert Auction

Hey everyone. Want something to do on a Saturday night that will be both fun AND beneficial to your fellow man? If you do, please join us on March 9th, at 5:30 p.m. for a Silent & Live Auction at St. John’s Lutheran Church. All proceeds from the auction will go to support the Zimbabwe Project. What is the Zimbabwe Project you ask? The Zimbabwe Project partners with local Zimbabwean organizations to help initiate village projects that will lead to an improved quality of life for villagers. Our goal is to provide education and training so that villagers may learn some “self-sustaining” methods to improve their quality of life , such as raising livestock, tree planting, sewing, carpentry, etc. It is a local organization dedicated to helping improve the lives of Zimbabweans, in particular, Zimbabwean children. Unfortunately, Zimbabwe has the highest percentage of orphans and the most citizens living with HIV/AIDS in the world. Unemployment averages around 80% and up to 90% of the population lives in poverty. The Zimbabwe Project also works with schools in rural communities in order to help build strong leadership skills for future generations. We have sponsored a soccer team which provides healthy, positive activity for the participants as well as fostering team work and a sense of responsibility, as the players are also expected to work in one of the many self-sustaining projects. Participating in the self-sustaining projects gives villagers a sense of pride, provides hope and also brings the people together, as a community. This year, a training event for identified leaders from various villages will be hosted by us to provide leaders with some invaluable tools such as public speaking, proposal writing, and financial and organizational management. With this kind of training we anticipate that participants will be able to more effectively administer the self-sustaining projects in their particular village. We will also be paying school fees for 152 children in village schools, renovating a school library, building a well in a village that has no clean water source and, of course, working on the start-up of several more self-sustaining projects. In order to be able to continue this valuable and rewarding work in Zimbabwe we must undertake some various fund raising activities. We are a local, grass roots organization with no administrative costs so all monies raised go directly to the work we do in Zimbabwe. And along with various fund-raising projects throughout the year we also hold a dinner and silent auction each spring. We are most grateful for any help we may acquire in our endeavours and we wish to thank everyone for their continued support. We hope to see you at the auction!!!! Particulars are below: Date: March 9th, 2013 Time: 5:30 p.m., Dinner at 6:00 Where: St. John’s Lutheran Church Address: 5151 Alain Rd. (off Silverstar Rd. just past Butcher Boys) Tickets: $5.00 Available at Curves, #1, 2901 – 27 St., Vernon Get your tickets soon as seating is limited. Hope to see you there!

2nd Annual Zimbabwe Walk

On September 26th, Curves Vernon will be hosting its 2nd Annual Zimbabwe Walk to raise funds for the Zimbabwe Project, an initiative that financially and physically supports projects such as building feeding centers, washrooms and dormitories for those suffering in Musana and neighbouring villages. 

The event will commence at 1:00pm and consist of an approximately 8km walk with a break for refreshments and snacks at the downtown Curves location.  The $20 registration fee includes a participant t-shirt and all proceeds are forwarded to the cause.  Additional donations are always welcomed (tax receipts provided). 

“This year we hope to reach our goal of raising $6,000”, said Angela Yablonski, Owner of Curves Vernon.  “This amount will feed and educate 200 orphans for an entire year - a little bit goes a long way in Zimbabwe”. 

Peter Maguwu, one of the Zimbabwe citizens Curves Vernon works with regularly, said “the Zimbabwe Project has been playing a vital role in life support for the Zimbabwe people…a project which the Zimbabwe government was failing to do due to economic hardships”. 

“Curves Vernon has always been dedicated to improving someone’s life – through weight loss or a charitable initiative.  We’re excited to be able to make a difference in a country where they need it so much” said Yablonski.   

Join us in making an impact on the lives of Zimbabweans.  To learn more about the cause visit www.zimbabweproject.com or if you would like more information about the walk and how to get involved call Curves at 250-503-1129.
