Who we are

WHO WE ARE

Fishers Foundation

My name is Sylvia Hove and I am the founder and Trustee of Fishers Foundation-The Domboshava community project. I was born, raised and educated in Zimbabwe and l currently live in the USA.

My passion is community development, the environment, cultural tourism and food security both in Zimbabwe and the USA – Project Grow Again and Project Grow Again Pictures. I believe in making a difference where ever I am in the community. I am on several boards and committees in a number of organizations in my community of Highland Park NJ where we fundraise for student scholarships and also help to provide food for the Highland Park Community Food pantry and Give a Hoot programs.

As a Shona and Cultural consultant, I have worked with McCarter Theater in Princeton, Woolly Mammoth Theater in DC, the Wilma theater in Philadelphia, Yale Drama School and Playwrights Horizons on Danai Gurira’s two Plays ‘The Convert’ and ‘Familiar’. I also helped with some Shona on the production ‘Breakfast with Mugabe’ which was off Broadway. Read why culture is very important to me

Our Communities:

Just as a seed, a community needs to be developed, grown and nurtured to become fruitful. The sense of community is planted in people’s hearts through involvement. Domboshava West/Africa focuses on cultivating and bridging the gap between our participating communities both locally or globally. Reminding us all that if we eat we should be involved. As humanity we have a responsibility to take care of that which sustains us, our planet earth. Our survival depends on a healthy planet. Without community involvement, knowledge and participation we fall short of understanding how others live across the globe and how some are affected by the lack of clean water. Unless a person walks through difficult situations they can never understand the plight of others. Diversity and inclusion is important to cultivate, developed and enhance the oneness with our climate change. Our digital space provides valuable information, educational materials and helps us to grow as we engage different communities in development.
