Its that part of the year when we become excited about the rains. The sun will be scorching hot and the land will be dry but everyone will be sharing that this heat is what comes before the rains. We are excited at L'Arche too because we are aware of what comes with the rains. Our core members are good with the garden and the expectation is so high. We have several vegetables we plant depending on the amount of rainfall. Our produce span over maize, carrots, cabbages, tomatoes, onions and several types of kale.
The community is also preparing to use more organic methods in pest control and plant additives. These methods will ensure the production of vegetables that are less toxic to our bodies. Waiting for the rains means so much more to our core members particularly those that work in the garden. The core members, Enock, Tino and Judith find meaning and sense of responsibility from their daily engagement in the garden.

August is a special month for us at L'Arche Zimbabwe as we launch our Therapy Centre. The centre has been a dream carried over several years.

The desire is to bring out the gifts each and every person with disabilities has.
Life is partly what we make it, and partly what is made by friends we choose. One of the most beautiful qualities of friendship is to understand and be understood. Such friendship is between Concilia and Vimbai.
Their relationship is in the heart hence everyone admires it. Sometimes Concilia is not able to pronounce words correctly such that it is difficult to understand, however, it can be difficult for anyone else not to Vimbai. She can easily help you understand the message Concilia is trying to send.
