Charity concert at Militärkantine in St. Gallen

Mubaya in Zimbabwe is being transformed according to the principles of permaculture in a place where people, animals, nature live together in harmony. It is a place of creative learning, mutual inspiration and co-creation.

The project celebrates its 10th anniversary with a benefit concert!

Christina Dieterle (violin) and Marcel Soldat (vocals, guitar and violin) will play intimate, thoughtful and upbeat music from around the world.

The proceeds go entirely to the project: 2022 is dedicated to the livelihood of women. The goal is to create a platform for women to work together to achieve financial independence. In a pilot project, an initial group will be trained in entrepreneurship, finance and permaculture, and will then keep chickens and sell their eggs and meat.

Admission free – collection

Women take the development of their village into their own hands – ecologically and self-managed. We can support them with financial contributions for training. Give hope to the women!

In Mubaya, a group of women has come together to train in management, microfinance and chicken farming according to permaculture principles. The goal is to establish chicken farming and egg production that will provide the women with an income independent of their husbands. In addition, the women learn how to advance each other’s projects with microcredits in order to secure the livelihood of their families in a self-managed manner.Your help is needed to advance this women’s project. Your donations will help train the women’s group. You provide the women in Mubaya with the opportunity to develop self-confident economic foundations for themselves and their families. And this in an environmentally friendly way. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your valuable contributions.
