Economic Empowerment

Economic Empowerment (especially of women): “It is estimated that between 80 to 90 percent of Zimbabweans are engaged in informal economic activities, and that the sector, which is also linked into supply chains and the formal economy, accounts for 40 percent of Zimbabwe’s GDP.” Innovation and inclusion: Policy priorities for Zimbabwe’s informal economy | Harvard University Center for African Studies.

We see that economic empowerment, particularly of women, is important for Zimbabweans who don’t have access to work in the urban areas. Training in areas such as – bee keeping, sewing, carpentry and welding are vitally important for the economic health of rural Zimbabwean families. Micro loans for livestock rearing, poultry meat and egg production are also useful ways to encourage economic independence.
