Introducing myself and my journal: zimdev

About Me:
I was born in Harare, then Salisbury and have been watching the country I love so much crumbling before my eyes. I love Zimbabwe the country of my birth and I love its people. If you go to Zimbabwe today, you may not realize the abject poverty that its people are living under because the beauty of their personalities, their smiles and warmth will melt your heart. Zimbabwe was the bread basket of Africa a decade ago, yet today its people can't put a loaf of bread on their own tables. I am running a project that supports aspiring entrepreneurs, mainly women and trains them to build sustainable businesses. We help women to get out of the cycle of poverty and give them hope of a better future.

My Passions:
Development, poverty eradication

My Challenges:
finances, bureaucracy

My Vision for the Future:
I hope to grow communities through entreprenueral support.

My Areas of Expertise:
Training, Development,

Welcome :)

I, too, love Zimbabwe. I was not raised there- but one of my soul-sisters lives there and I have lived with her family on their tea farm for a short time. She is currently in Mutare. I may actually be coming that side later this year!

I look forward to reading more about your life in Zimbabwe and your perspective. Please check out the Zimbabwe Cafe: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/10233 it is a great place for people who are in Zimbabwe and who love the great house of stone :)

Again, welcome!

Love,

Sharese
