Melrose Projects is a youth association that is based in Harare, Zimbabwe. The founder is Melisa Muraji who is passionate about empowering youth and women. Melrose has training programs that teach youth and women how to make different items such as, detergents, rugs, shoes and bags etc. They also do campaigns to discourage young people from Drug Abuse.
To help combat COVID-19 in the community, the Melrose Projects team has made hand sanitisers and freely distributed them in Mount Hampden village.They have also given out some face masks.
Some of the Future plans that Melrose Projects have to combat COVID-19 include the following:
– Carrying out awareness campaigns that encourage the youth and everyone else to abide by government instructions of social distancing. – Supplying the vulnerable with protective clothing eg masks and gloves – Supplying foodstuff to those struggling during the lockdown, so that they will not go out in the streets looking for food thereby risking their health and that of everyone else.
