Zimbabwe

to make a difference

Agriculture is and always has been the backbone of Zimbabwe’s economy.

This is a largely rural country, with the majority of people deriving their livelihoods from farming and related rural economic activities. However, largely elementary agricultural practices and a lack of access to markets has had a seriously detrimental effect on the country's food security levels, given that the vast majority of farmers depend on rain-fed agricultural production.

Food security is fragile at best because of prevailing weather conditions, including erratic rainfall and long dry- spells - a situation which became worse still with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Half the country's population currently live below the poverty line.

In view of this distressing statistic, Gift of the Givers plays an appreciable role in executing a number of humanitarian interventions, such as food distribution, education support and responding to disasters as they unfold across the country.
