In the heart of Southern Africa, Zero Hunger with Langar in Botswana, is taking root. Last week the team were in Gaborone on their second visit to start laying the foundation to tackle food insecurity, amongst the most vulnerable, in the country.
As part of our mission we’re actively engaging with schools in Gaborone, Botswana's bustling capital. By visiting these educational institutions, the we gained valuable insights into the specific needs of the local communities. This hands-on approach ensures that the help provided is not just generous but also *targeted and effective*.
Collaboration is key to ZHWL's strategy. Working closely with Parent-Teacher Associations (PTAs) and social services, the initiative directs its efforts where they are needed most. This partnership ensures a holistic approach, considering not just the immediate need for food but also the broader social factors contributing to hunger.
Looking ahead, the ZHWL Botswana team are meticulously planning its operations to begin serving by the first quarter of 2024. This strategic approach underlines the commitment to making a sustainable and long-lasting impact on the fight against hunger in the small southern African country. With dedication and community support, ZHWL Botswana is poised to make a significant difference in the lives of many ensuring we stay true to our core mission of *giving a hand up and not ‘just’ a hand out*.
