Since 1983 when Save the Children began operations in Zimbabwe, the organisation has remained committed to children, by supporting the government and communities to deliver on their mandate and make the country a better place for children. By implementing relevant child rights programmes, responding to emergencies and advocacy efforts, major milestones have been reached. These have all contributed towards ensuring that the Zimbabwean child survives, learns and is protected. Over the years Save the Children responded to several emergencies in Zimbabwe, notably the cholera emergency, drought and food insecurity, Cyclone Idai emergency and lately the COVID-19 emergency.
We believe in working together, empowering and strengthening local capacity, hence we work mostly through partner organisation, such as local and International Non-governmental organisations, government departments and ministries, local authorities, communities and children. All our support in the communities is given freely, regardless of ethnicity, religious or political affiliation.
