A Portrait of Elizabeth: Shona Farmer from Zimbabwe
Share
clear

by Geoffrey Clarfield (December 2012)


Elizabeth was born in 1964. She is a tall, high cheek boned Shona speaking daughter of farmers in the central plateau area of Zimbabwe. To get to her house you walk five kilometers from the nearest city centre. Her one room house beside the beehive kitchen/reception room is set among green farms and rocky brown outcrops, streaked with dark black lines and perforated with tufts of trees. Chickens and chicks run around her compound. That is her “income generating project” as it is labeled in development jargon, as she farms about four acres with maize and vegetables, some which will be eaten and some which will be sold in the local market.  more>>>

 People in Africa, or anywhere else, are just as intelligent as people in America. The key to development, then, appears to be improving the human rights situations and just administration.Any suggestions?
