Save the Children

Save the Children

Save the Children began operations in Zimbabwe in 1983. Since then, 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 programmes, responding to emergencies and advocacy efforts, major milestones have been reached in ensuring  Zimbabwean child survives, learns and is protected. In 2016 alone, more than 2,000,000 people were reached through Save the Children initiatives, and among these were 82,000 people who had been left without food, following the El-Nino induced drought that affected the region.

Save the Children believe in working together, empowering and strengthening local capacity , hence we work mostly  through partner organisation, such as civic society, 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.
