The name Txivirika means dedicated to the work.
The association Txivirika in Licilo, started in 2008 through the World Relief Thsembeka project. The volunteers involved in Tshembeka were educated on home based care for those affected by HIV/AIDS. These volunteers also support a number of orphans and sick people yet had no real income.
The irrigation scheme has now provided them with the opportunity to earn a sustainable income while supporting those affected by HIV/AIDS in their community. Clients here have come up with the concept of “The Orphans Stomach”, a place where orphans can come to collect food when they need it. Each client in Txivirika has agreed to donate 2 kg’s of everything they harvest to the Orphans Stomach in order to keep a stocked source of food to feed those in need.
Each client has 2000m² plot of land.
