The Hand in Hand Zimbabwe team recently completed its week-long 2019 planning session with the organisation committing to seeking funding to support communities in the seven districts it operates in. The new projects will seek to deal with poverty, which has escalated in the past few months due to the country’s harsh economic environment.
HiH Zimbabwe’s Community Upliftment Project, which was only being implemented in Bulilima and Chikomba, will be gradually extended to cover all seven districts as part of strategies to fight poverty at a large scale among rural households.
Poverty alleviation through jobs creation, women and youth empowerment remains HiH Zimbabwe’s main focus in 2019.
HIH Zim also commits itself to implementing sustainable interventions that contribute to the attainment of the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
No poverty, Zero Hunger, Good health and well being, Gender Equity, Climate Action, Life on land, Partnerships for the goals
