Transforming Communities Mushroom by Mushroom
She was orphaned at the age of seven, dropped out of school when she was nine and at just ten years old was encouraged to marry a man in his late 30’s.
But the young Zimbabwean girl, Chido Govera, had other ideas.
Being trained in how to cultivate mushrooms quickly transformed Chido’s life, her family’s future and spread to surrounding villages.
Chido Govera now travels the world, delivering her messages of hope and environmental empowerment in diverse communities.
She spoke at the NSW Aboriginal Land Council recently about growing mushrooms, a big picture of economic development and thinking “outside the box”.
OurMob will speak in depth with Chido in our next edition.
