30 former sex workers tend this newly dug community garden in the city of Gweru. They’re hoping it will keep them from returning to the sex trade and provide a healthier and financially secure future. Many of the women, like Loveness Dube, came looking for work but ended up in a life of sexual violence and police harassment. Loveness is now HIV positive. Her garden will provide the varied and nutritious diet her illness demands. She'll also earn money to support her son

00:00:58 SOUNDBITE by Regina Gapa (in ENGLISH): it's a humanitarian issue because people have been affected by a lot of socio-economic problems since 2000; we've had the usual problems, the land reforms, the governance issues, that have affected people, and more so some of the people who are here; also we've got health problems, HIV and AIDS, the decline in the health system, especially in the urban areas.
Loveness will be able to sell her crops in one of the city's many well-stocked markets. At the moment although plentiful, the food, which is priced in US dollars, is just too expensive for people like her. Gweru City Council is backing the project. If successful, it has the potential to dramatically change the way people get food and earn money
