Résumé partiel
The Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ), intends to economically empower youth and women, particularly in rural areas, by setting up food (honey, horticulture and mopane worms) value addition facilities in three districts ; and an artisanal gold ore milling facility in one district. The food processing facilities shall be set up in existing vocational training centers ; and the artisanal gold ore milling facility shall be set up in a designated business zone in the district. The processing facilities involve the rehabilitation or extension of existing buildings to house the facilities. The facilities targeted for rehabilitations/extensions/constructions are of small scale and the total estimated cost of the works is USD 400,000. The target population to benefit directly from the project will mainly be youth and women with emphasis on the rural poor. The Project targets the women and youth in 5 of the 59 districts of the country. The targeted districts are Beitbridge (mopane worms) Mutasa and Lupane (honey), Guruve (artisanal gold ore milling) ; Mutasa and Marondera (horticulture) ; and The population of the targeted districts, totalling 650,000 (50.7% female) is expected to benefit indirectly from the project. A total of 5,000 youth and women located in the project geographic scope will benefit from additional off-farm jobs to be created in the subsectors of food processing, and processing of gold ore. 200 MSMEs in the targeted food value chains are expected to be reached with business development services, appropriate technology and facilitating their access to credits and markets.
