Biombe, a village comprised of 6000 inhabitants, is Global Health Connections 2nd village. where it all started for Global Health Connections. We began this second CH&EC in April 2020 with 300 initial participants; 250 graduated from the program in early October and there were over 1700 direct beneficiaries throughout the village. 80% of the participants in the health club are women. The Economic Curriculum started in November in Biombe and the 250 members were able to choose from Beekeeping, Vegetable Farming, Brick Making and Mushroom Farming. As of right now, the Economic Projects have been put on hold in Biombe due to various circumstances.
