Matanho Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of Zimbabwean musicians and their communities. Matanho Project has a threefold mission:
To help Zimbabwean musicians and their families generate income through self-sustaining musical, cultural arts, and micro-loan projects. Emergency health fund is available for families contracted in the micro-loan project.
To help Zimbabwean villages transform from debt-dependent farming methods to permaculture methods that are designed to work together for sustainability.
To facilitate a cross-cultural sharing of musical expertise and artist development between Zimbabwean and American musicians.
The Ancient Ways' mission is to learn from and preserve the traditional ways of indigenous peoples around the world, and throughout time, by exploring their art, music, and cosmology, so that we can educate and encourage people today to develop ways to live which are more environmentally and socially sustainable.
Projects include Nhimbe for Progress, and Jangano, which assist communities in Zimbabwe with improving living conditions, particularly for children.
The Zimbabwean Music Festival is an annual celebration of Zimbabwean music and culture. A fun-filled three-day weekend of concerts, workshops, community conversations, a marketplace and more, Zimfest is the largest annual gathering in North America of students, teachers, performers, and fans of Zimbabwean music.
