at Hwange / Binga
Mr E Chitsungo, Ms D Mugugu, and Mr S Gwatidzo of Higherlife Foundation (HLF) conducted a workshop at the Assemblies of God Hwange Conference Centre for partners from our 9 Hands of Hope Transformation Centers. The HLF team took turns unpacking the ReImagine Rural campaign.
Key Points raised in the workshop
The thrust of ReImagine Rural is to take people from Financial Dependence to Financial Independence.
Applicants must have a Project Constitution – Ms Mugugu has already sent a template of the Constitution
Applicants must have a Project Steering Committee.
