Our strategy

Systematically build resilience to shocks and stresses, promote recovery for vulnerable communities, and strengthen resilience programs in Zimbabwe.

The context

Zimbabwe struggles with severe unemployment, diminishing access to health and education services and a steady decline in purchasing power. Once the breadbasket of southern Africa, it is now food-insecure and lacks the critical infrastructure and support mechanisms needed to help its most vulnerable citizens and stimulate economic growth.

Our work

  • Agriculture & Food: Reducing dependence on food aid by providing training, lowering barriers to credit, and supporting market oriented community development approaches.
  • Children & Youth: Supporting children with disabilities and reducing barriers to their participation in mainstream economic activities.
  • Innovations: Using mobile technology to provide farmers with agronomic extension information, financial and market services.
  • Water: Improving access to quality drinking water and sanitation services and environmental hygiene at community and household levels.
