First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa sourced two greenhouses from well-wishers and donated them to wives of Zimbabwe Republic Police officers over the weekend.
The donation is meant to empower them to complement their spouses through hardwork.
One of the greenhouses, which has been set up at ZRP’s Bindura Farm, will empower spouses of senior officers, while the other one is meant for spouses of junior officers across the country.
The donation also came with inputs and water infrastructure to help the women produce tomatoes, onions and horticultural crops.
She also donated food hampers to all attendees and shared business tips and ideas.
Overall, the donations were meant to empower spouses of police officers, who like most people, have borne the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic.
They were encouraged to embrace empowerment programmes to help sustain their families
“It is a pleasure meeting with spouses of senior police officers from across the nation, which is an indication of mutual respect,” she said.
“We are here to interact as women, discussing and sharing ways on how best we can be empowered, be it at home or higher levels.
Amai Mnangagwa rallied the women to unite for their projects to be successful. She exhorted them to work hard, shun corruption and learn from their mistakes.
