According to the world bank:

Growth in agriculture has at least twice the potential impact of any other sector for reducing poverty around the world. It has the ability to support livelihood through sustainable income generation and holistic health care.

We’re passionate about being the hands and feet of Jesus.

“Too often, we misinterpret what Jesus was doing. He didn’t just feed the people. He was with the people and they got hungry, and so of course, he fed them. He didn’t just see a need and feed them in an effort to ‘save them.’ The most important part of the story was the relationship.”
- Unopa Makanyanga

Our Vision

"Every two seconds someone around the world dies from a hunger-related cause (Unicef)." This quote birthed 2 Seconds Or Less, Inc., an organization focused on partnering with rural Zimbabwean communities to create innovative solutions to food insecurity. Our goal is to see an end to childhood malnutrition through large scale agricultural initiatives and entrepreneurship training in primary schools and local homes throughout Zimbabwe.  

We do this through a three-pronged approach.

The lynchpin of our projects is sustainability; that the work continues long after we leave the field. Education is what makes this sustainability possible. We partner with agricultural experts and local colleges to provide educational training for our project recipients, who use their new business and farming knowledge to scale their efforts, therefore feeding their families and the communities that surround them. Furthermore, we know education is the fastest and most effective way to break the cycle of poverty, and our dual focus on homes and at schools creates an environment where more young people have the opportunity to continue their primary/secondary school education.

With the help of our partner organization and our field officers on the ground, we ensure continuous support, offering mentorship and small grants throughout the process. Furthermore, we complete monthly monitoring and evaluation reports to collect data that helps us better serve each recipient with resources that encourage more holistic entrepreneurship. Each person that completes our program will walk away with the ability to adapt, innovate, and grow their passion projects.

Empowerment fist icon


With an over 90% formal unemployment rate, Zimbabwe is home to one of the worst economic crises in the world. While many people report informal employment as subsistence farmers, very few have the resources to sell their products and impact the greater community as a whole. However, our model is designed to help our recipients first feed their own families, then cycle to supporting others while earning a wage, with a final step of offering employment to more members of the community as their businesses scale.

About us

Our programs

At 2 Seconds Or Less, we consider our mission to be 50/50. Fifty percent is about empowering the people of Zimbabwe to rise above the cycle of poverty, and fifty percent is about empowering the youth of our nation to rise above indifference, and to stand up and do something beyond themselves to better the world. Our current programs represent this dual commitment, and we’re incredibly passionate about not only building community overseas, but also in our own backyards.

Zimbabwe is currently ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world. However, it is difficult to reach with foreign aid due to its elevated political and racial tensions. Because of our partners, we work in Zimbabwe where few others are able to. Our attention is here, and here alone, because we believe that transformational change requires a deep investment, rather than a wide investment. Until Zimbabwe is free from the crippling effects of malnutrition, we will continue to fight for its end.
