GUIJÁ FARMERS


Subsistence Farmers in Guijá walk 10km to their plots

Guijá is a rural district located along the Limpopo River in the southern Gaza province of Mozambique across the River from Chókwè, one of the more developed and populated districts in Gaza. The population of Guijá district is approximately 80,000 and most people speak only the local dialect Changana. Guijá is a very rural and underdeveloped area with a low literacy rate, high prevalence of HIV, and scarcity of jobs.

The people of Guijá rely on subsistence farming for their livelihood, and travel 5-10km by foot every day to reach their farms near the river.  Because of the drought that has plagued Southern Africa in early 2016, locals have to travel 7km to Chókwè to purchase most of their food.

One of the women that will receive a bicycle is Orlinda. She supports her three children with the produce that she grows in her farming plot. She walks 2-3 hours each way to the plot, and carries up to 20 kilos on her head when she comes home. A bicycle will allow her to reach her plot in around 1 hour, and allow her to triple the amount she can carry home and to market, so she will have more income and time for her children.

This project is raising funds to give bicycles to 50 subsistence farmers in the villages Tomanine and Chivongoene. In detail, your funds will achieve:

  • Local production of 50 Bicycles
  • Transport of the bicycles to their villages
  • Training on how to ride and perform basic maintenance on the bicycles
  • Accessories: Each bicycle will come with a pump, personalized tools, and removable lantern to use for lighting at home
