Drought continues to be a major hindrance in agriculture production in Zimbabwe . Binga is one such area, which lies in a low rainfall area and inhabited by the Tonga people.

Major problems facing communities in Binga include food security issues, economic issues and other developmental issues such as gender, health and environmental problems.

Each family receives a flock of 5 Guinea fowl, Guinea fowl play an important part of the Tonga diet - Guinea fowl help improve the diet by providing protein rich eggs.

Guinea fowl are adapted to the harsh conditions of Binga and much easier to raise from locally available feeds. They also reproduce faster with each hen being able to produce up to 90 eggs per breeding period. Families are able to sell fowl and eggs to neighbouring towns. This goes a long way in improving the families' income. They can then start to clothe and educate their children.
