Teach People Zimbabwe

We believe addressing the holistic needs of people in a context that makes sense for the local geography, demography, political climate and partnership opportunity is a good combination of determinents enabling us to decide where, when, with whom and how.

We are currently building programs in Zimbabwe to teach and enable water acquisition, filtration, storage and distribution, preventive health behaviors education, computer skills for teachers, students and business development, aquaponics and conservation based farming – all spanning adults and children alike.

Our desire is to implement fully self-sustaining community solutions as illustrated in the associative graphic working to addresss the whole person. All project commitments are designed with the exit in mind. We design for and contribute to autonomy, not dependence.
