I built this A-Frame last night!’- Rusike, Zimbabwe Innovation in VR in Africa
- Eli Gudza, World Links Zimbabwe Director and our project partner, was amazed when a local farmer set down his new A-Frame in front of the workshop audience one morning in 2008.
- Eli had been presenting our Rural Life Skills Development Project agricultural i3dlo`s to local small – holding farmers the previous day. Funded by the Kellogg Foundation, they covered several important farming issues such as combating pests, setting up ploughs and combating soil erosion, by ploughing along contour lines, not down them.
- It captured the imagination of one farmer who, now understanding how to make an A-Frame, worked that evening to put one together. For the first time in over 30 years, contours were set out in local fields, which is still going on this day. Precious top soil is being preserved, yields are increasing and new wealth is being created locally.
