Bopoma Villages founders, Dr. Randy and Natalie Watson lived normal Canadian lives until 2009 when both were impacted as they visited Zimbabwe. They witnessed the devastating impact of economic collapse, disease, and malnutrition. They worked together to set up several community programs that created clean water and taught about proper hygiene. In 2012, they discovered Thrive’s growing health program in Kenya and sent 2 Zimbabweans to learn about food and health security. Today they have created very extensive community development programs in 12 villages in the Zaka area located in southern Zimbabwe.
