Linda Kabaira is a dedicated community worker, who runs projects with SCOPE in Zimbabwe and Zambia with young women and schools, focusing on creating home gardens as a tool for ecological regeneration. Linda received funds through the River of Life in 2016 and 2020.
Working with young women, Linda focuses mostly on growing staple food crops and using permaculture techniques to build soil fertility, manage water and maximize harvests. During 2016 when she received River of Life funds, she worked with 431 women, who are now able to meet their household food and dietary requirements, with an abundance of diverse, nutrient-rich, chemical-free fruits and vegetables. Their gardens produce a surplus, which they sell to gain income.
In 2020, Linda continued working with girls aged 15-24 and women aged 25-35, to deepen their knowledge of micronutrient-rich foods so their consumption of these foods could be increased. She was able to provide trainings to not only women and girls, but is in the process of developing trainings for the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare on child and maternal nutrition.
Linda facilitated an Introduction of the Ecovillage principles workshop with a group of young women, which helped them with grounding in sustainability concepts. Linda shares that it brought a sense of ownership, cohesion and oneness to the participants.
