Fambidzanai is working with HEKS and HIVOS in the above mentioned project areas. HEKS has been funding Fambidzanai's projects in Matebeland for more than ten years and our base of beneficiary has increased from 200 to 350 farmers. HIVOS has also funded FPC projects in Svosve and for the past three years. We are also very glad to announce the extension of the project with another three year term, with possibilities of extending further and covering as much beneficiary as possible. Currently the project has 550 project beneficiaries. German Agro-Action has engaged us in a consultancy service of training their farmers on conservation farming in a permaculture context and to date we have managed to train about 10 groups from Gokwe and Nkayi, and Gwanda. The results of our training have been awesome to the extend that adoption of Conservation Farming incorporating permaculture principles in these area was almost 90%.

Currently German Agro-Action (now Welthungerhilfe) and our organization are engaged in talks of trying to extend the service. Fambidzanai has been the implementing partner of EU Microfinance projects in Mhondoro, and Guruve for establishment of nutrition gardens and irrigation schemes. The projects have been temporarily suspended due to political instability in the area. We are still in talks to try and resuscitate the project since calamities have returned to these areas. Tudor trust of UK is a funding partner for Fambidzanai Permaculture Centre's operational cost. That means Tudor provides funds that covers administration cost, and this ensures smooth running of projects, trainings and any other activities we will be carrying on the centre.

Threshold Foundation of USA is funding a one off project on seed multiplication, with the major thrust on traditional varieties, and nitrogen fixers. This project aims to procure and multiply all landraces varieties of field and garden crops in Zimbabwe. This will establish Fambidzanai Permaculture centre as one of the leading seed banks in Zimbabwe especially on landrace varieties.
