About Christian Aid
Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive. But together we have the power to transform lives. We are a global movement of people, churches and local organisations who passionately champion dignity, equality, justice and love worldwide. We are the changemakers, the peacemakers, the mighty of heart. Everyone is equal in the sight of God. For over 70 years, this has inspired us to stand together in solidarity with our most marginalised global neighbours, of all faiths and none. We push for good nutrition and healthcare for all. We fight the climate crisis and provide urgent help when disasters strike. We work in places of conflict to stand against violence and build lasting peace. And we help people living in poverty to earn a fair wage so they can protect themselves in times of crisis. Above all, we seek to eradicate extreme poverty by tackling its root causes. Together with people living in poverty, we amplify our voices to speak truth to power and create lasting change.
About the ECID project
The Evidence and Collaboration for Inclusive Development (ECID) project aims to foster collaboration among civil society to effect inclusion and empowerment of marginalised women, and people with disabilities in Manicaland and Matabeleland North Provinces of Zimbabwe. The work focuses on access to services (health, social welfare, social protection), economic policies, public finance accountability and other emerging areas as identified and prioritised by communities. To achieve this, civil society is being supported to work with or challenge social, economic and political institutions for increased accountability, greater access to quality social services and increased participation in economic governance using evidence-based programming. Ultimately this is expected to enhance data supported advocacy, monitoring, evaluation and learning that will inform future interventions and improve inclusivity for the target group of people with disabilities (PwDs) and women.
