Chiedza have been engaging many caregivers in Income Saving and Lending Schemes as a means of assisting them to secure a concrete financial base. Chiedza always train caregivers to be independent not dependent from handouts after a certain period. Sustainability is our main goal in any project we venture into and we believe the same with our caregivers .
Many of the OVCs at the centre come from very poor families that are struggling to make ends meet and Chiedza is their only source of relief. In a bid to assist the caregivers, Chiedza have helped them identify a paying IGA project which is poultry rearing . Poultry rearing is one of the most thriving business in Zimbabwe currently and Chiedza with its market linkages skills , is committed to assist caregivers who shall complete this task with markets for their produce. Chiedza have recorded positive stories/testimonial from other beneficiaries who underwent the same training for different projects as they are no longer dependent and now afford to fend for their own families.
