Women from Marondera district’s Ward 5 who were trained in income generating projects have already started reaping rewards of the training as they are now selling their products.
The women who were trained in bee keeping, fish farming and poultry farming have started benefiting from the programme and showcased their products at an expo held in Marondera.
Zanu PF National Secretary for Women’s Affairs Cde Marble Chinomona commended the women for the initiative which she said removes the dependency syndrome.
Programme Cordinator Mrs Virginia Chitamba Mangwanya said all the projects were self-funded which shows that with enough determination women can do wonders.
The women are making uniforms for local schools which is one of their major sources of income.
Other projects they are into include honey processing, drying vegetables, peanut butter making, maize farming, horticulture and poultry.
