'Young People We Care' volunteers assist vulnerable households in Zimbabwe

By Bertha Shoko

NYANGA,Zimbabwe,27 July 2011 – Ambuya Sylvia Nyawera is an elderly woman from Dombo village in the rural Nyanga area of Zimbabwe,about 300 km east of Harare. She sits cross-legged in her small kitchen,palm on her cheek,looking miserable.

After spending the weekend with her son John,a schoolteacher in another part of Nyanga,Ms. Nyawera is alone again. She has no one to look after her or to keep her company in the absence of either her son or his wife.

When they aren’t with her,Ms. Nyawera has no caregiver. She grows her own food in the small field around her homestead and still does her own household chores.UNICEF Image

‘Young People We Care’

“My other children died a few years ago after falling victim to this disease [AIDS] that is killing many young people these days. If they were here,they would take care of me, ” she explains. “John does his best,but he can’t be here all the time to take care of me because he has to work and also take care of his family.”

Ms. Nyawera is among the many older people in Zimbabwe who have been affected by HIV and AIDS,losing their children to the disease,and now have no caregivers. Some are themselves caregivers of orphans left behind by their grown children.

Although Ms. Nyawera feels a deep sense of longing for her late children,she has been blessed with more ‘children’ who visit her at least three times a week through the Young People We Care (YPWC) programme. She looks forward to the company she gets from the members of the YPWC club in Nyanga.UNICEF Image

Easing the burden

An initiative of UNICEF Zimbabwe,the YPWC programme began in 2005. It is part of the effort to help ease the burden of care in households where there is illness or where an elderly person has no caregiver.

Young People We Care volunteers sort potatoes they harvested for Ambuya Sylvia Nyawera. The higher-grade potatoes are used for consumption while the lower-grade ones are left for seed in the next planting season.

YPWC also gives young people information on HIV prevention,care and treatment,and trains them in skills that prepare them for adulthood.

This past farming season,YPWC members helped Ms. Nyawera plant and harvest about 20 bags of maize,her biggest crop in five years. They also assisted her with planting and harvesting potatoes,thereby significantly improved food security in her household.

Not sure if it'd fit in with your decor much,

But you could do some kind of lush/crisp--whatever fits your room, drapery over/around the doors next to it-but extend it out to cover up the pannel. In my old apartment I had that problem between my dinning and kitchen-I had an italian bistro/wine theme going.. used a couple of dramatic red and burgundy pannels together with that idea and it really gave it a bistro feel--cozy little hole in the wall type feel.

  • Avatar tripleT97 What is the meaning behind rose pedals for the flower girl?
    Sep 17, 2009 by tripleT97 | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I am planning a fall wedding. it is a traditional formal wedding with a touch of country/western. i have thought about letting the flower girl throw leaves instead of pedals. would that be wrong? what is the meaning behind rose pedals. also if anyone has any ideas for decor with a horseshoe theme wedding please let me know.

    • Life is a bed of roses, roses are the flower of romance and love traditionally. A blooming rose and fruits represent a woman's fertility and it is an old symbol associated with bringing luck for having children to the new bride. Traditionally if you have symbols of blooming flowers and fruit on bedroom wall paper or in a bedroom prints on blankets and sheets etc., it means you want to get pregnant.

I just painted my walls pink, i have a mossy oak bedset, brown curtains that match the brown on my bedset, and brown picture frames. I need help on what to put on my walls please. I dont have a clue, so leave a comment if you can help me out please and thank you.

    • Well I have a friend who has the exact same theme! She has vintage white furniture, pink bed sheets with branches on it, pink wall, cowgirl written on the wall in cursive, shelves that have a horse, boots, tiara, and she …ike horse shoes that has a cowboy hat on it. Then she has her pink hunting gun sitting in the corner and has brown stuff in her room to compliment her bed sheets! Then she has a Jason aldean poster in a frame on her wall!

  • Avatar Yvan R What type of transformation does a word undergo when it is borrowed from one language into another one ?
    Oct 27, 2011 by Yvan R | Posted in Words & Wordplay

    Take the word Zen. It came from Japanese (where it was introduced from Chinese Chan). Now it is widely used in western laguages. Instead of pointing to a variery of Buddhism, it means an attitude, a capacity to overcome stress and to concentrate on what is simple and essential.

    • The word "zen" is an interesting term to use to show transformation.

      The term originated in the Sanskrit word "dhayana" which means meditation. The word used by the Buddha was "jhan …e the word "zen" to describe everything from home decor to a kind of personal coolness. That evolution is normal, even though it would be foreign to the various Asian countries that use some version of the term.
