In partnership with the relevant government departments, such as the Departments of Agriculture and Physical Planning, and the District Development Fund, we prepared plots for 365 settlers, and completed land allocation to the settlers. This resettlement involved extensive consultation with the families, compensations and the relocation of family graves. We have worked with farmers in the Shashe community on a range of livelihood initiatives including agricultural and livestock improvement initiatives, Master Farmer training, and a community-based HIV/AIDS awareness programme to ensure a self-sustaining community

To date our livestock enhancement programme has yielded over 1,200 pedigree calves, and over 2,000 farmers have attended the basic Master Farmer training programme. Shashe is the first Zimbabwean farming community to produce cotton seed and is self-sufficient in terms of food security.
