A Boost from the West
Over 9,800 people will benefit from the recent grant made to ASAP Africa by The West Foundation. The funds will support ASAP’s Village Savings and Lending Project in Nyanga area, which has been ongoing since 2004 called "Kufusa Mari".
The Kufusa Mari project is scheduled to run through December 2006, but with the record inflation ongoing throughout the year, some project activities to further strengthen income generating activities in the area had to be curtailed. According to Willie Dhlandhlara, ASAP’s Country Director in Zimbabwe, the project is now operating at full scale and field staff have the resources required to meet the needs of the rural savings clubs.
ASAP Africa is thankful for the generous support from The West Foundation, which will help us to use our skills to the best of our ability to help people in their efforts to improve their own lives in rural Zimbabwe today.
