Mission:
Ancient Ways preserves indigenous people’s ancient life-giving traditions through collaborative and sustainable practices, including health and well-being services, academic, arts, and public health education, and building huts, fuel-efficient stoves, toilets, and wells. Ancient Ways currently works in the US, Peru, and Zimbabwe.

Results:
This year the Nhimbe for Progress Preschool again partnered with Sundborn Children’s House to feed 80 preschool children and offer an early childhood development program that has been identified by the government as a model school. 50 children will graduate from this preschool this December 2012 and be ready to move on to grade 1 at a local government school in January, where each year they are recognized as bright stars, always at the front of the class. We believe that feeding children at this delicate age provides neurological support that should not be underrated as it nurtures their physical, mental and emotional growth.

Additionally, all ages of children have been supported in afterschool, weekend, and holiday activities by our Youth Well Being program, in which 1) we renovated and expanded a set of marimbas for learning music, 2) we shipped over 200 pounds of books to our Community Center Library, and 3) we expanded the access to a 3-day overnight Life Skills Learning Retreat 3 times a year, so that more boys and more girls are now able to participate in this special opportunity.
