1. Why do you work with Umuntu and what is your personal motivation?
I work with the Umuntu Movement because it is my desire to bring my sustainable permaculture together with local and foreign communities to participate in the restoration of the planet and encourage people to lead a better life in harmony through permaculture, clean water treatment and environmental protection (tree planting).
2. What are the goals you want to reach with Umuntu?
To disseminate the establishment of permaculture demonstration gardens and nurseries and the provision of water treatment services to the general public. The main objective would be to replant trees to green Zimbabwe, to provide safe food for the people in the community through the cultivation of quality food and clean water.
3. In which country and region do we help you?
In Zimbabwe we work in the provinces of Harare and Mashonaland.
