At the onset of the project a detailed project proposal was drawn up by an experienced heritage management consultant. This preliminary document can be downloaded as a PDF. While it still encapsulates many of the basic, ideal plans we hope to implement, however, the realities of Zimbabwe have required rethinking of some of the proposals. Several have been scaled down for the time being given shortages of funds, expertise, food and general construction materials.

Securing the area remains a priority, but it requires a lot of money which we just do not have at this stage. Quotations for a fully electrified perimeter fence will cost the equivalent of several thousand US dollars. We hope to raise this money through external donations but in the meantime we have started to secure the unsupervised access points, increased the number of security personnel and patrols, and begun to put up booms at the main designated entrances.

We have designed a number of “mini-proposals” which have been circulated to various local companies, individuals, NGOs and embassies. Those that can have been very generous in assisting in our achieving some of these projects – uniforms, labour, repairs, toilet rehabilitation, etc. Some of the outstanding projects can be downloaded below.
