Macheke is a small farming community in Zimbabwe with about 8,300 people (est. 2006 census) that was formed during the colonial period because of its rich agricultural soils. The Macheke Sustainability Project (MSP) is a registered non-profit organization headquartered in NJ, USA. Essentially, MSP is a collection of social business initiatives whose focus is to empower people and eradicate poverty in the village community of Macheke, Zimbabwe. This model of poverty reduction seeks to support people in their goal to becoming self-reliant through social entrepreneurship initiatives. Today there is a vital need for sustainable development in order to shift this communitys future from a state of poverty to one where it is thriving. The holistic approach to development will aid the much-needed changes in health, agriculture, finance, education/IT, and renewable resources. The Macheke Sustainability Project collaborates with Monmouth Universitys Institute for Global Understanding in using a research approach to find out what is really needed in Macheke and to assess how any actions on the ground have amounted to the communitys progress. The vision is to make a real contribution to the UN Millennium Development Goals in a community that has struggled to advance on every dimension of poverty.
