Women who have had CHC training understand that the best way to protect their families from Covid is to improve home hygiene. Instead of waiting for handouts from NGOs and Agencies, Africa AHEAD trains CHC members to see what they can do for themselves, to build their sence of independence and self sufficency.
Jekesai FAN (Food and Nutrition) Club in Tsododo village have been contributing their meagre income towards buying utensils for each of their CHC members. The sense of self sufficiency is strong in Zimbabwe where communities have had to rely on their own resources for years, as the country fails to protect them from major epidemics of cholera typhyoi and now Covid 19.
