Most of the population in Zimbabwe are farmers who rely on subsistence farming. They constantly face the threat of drought, the turbulent economic and political environment and the impact of the cost of living crisis. The World Bank estimated that half of the population in the country is in extreme poverty. Many people only have one or two meals a day.
In response, we partnered with local churches in rural North and East areas to support small-scale farmers. For example, we provide fertilisers, seeds and goats, introduce conservation farming methods, and engage them in sales marketing, packaging, saving and financial management to develop their livelihood. In the southern part of the country, we advocate for gender equality to reduce sexual and gender-based violence, improve awareness of child protection in communities, provide sex and reproductive health education, refer teenagers who need sexual reproductive health services to government clinics and provide legal support to women who suffered sexual and gender-based violence.
