Our Strategy

We are committed to improving access to healthcare and food supplies for poor and vulnerable populations with greater emphases on women and children.

The Context

Zimbabwe is a beautiful landlocked country in southern part of Africa. It shares a common boundary with the republic of South Africa at the south, the republic of Mozambique at the east, the republic of Botswana at the southwest and the republic of Zambia and Namibia at the northwest. With an estimated population of 12.5 million, Zimbabwe has one of the highest literacy rates on the continent: about 90.7% of Zimbabweans above the age of 15 can at least read and write.

Despite this high literacy rate however, Zimbabwe remains one of the poorest countries in Africa today with unemployment rates up to about 92% and the majority of its people live below poverty line. In addition to this endemic level of poverty, wide spread disease is also a major problem that continues to threaten the lives of poor and vulnerable populations in Zimbabwe. The prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe is amongst the highest in Africa and over 1 million people are currently living with the dreaded disease, with a record of approximately 83,000 deaths on yearly basis. Other life threatening diseases include but not limited to: malaria, bacterial, protozoal diarrhea, rabies etc.
