Where we work

Zimbabwe, known officially as the Republic of Zimbabwe, is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, situated between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers. Zimbabwe is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the south-west, Zambia to the north, and Mozambique to the east.

More than 7.7 million people in Zambia – half the population – face food insecurity, and almost a quarter of people in Zimbabwe earn below the International Poverty Line ($1.90 per day).
