World Vision Zimbabwe


World Vision began operating in Zimbabwe in 1973, primarily providing assistance to children’s homes and offering relief to Zimbabweans in camps and institutions.

After independence in 1980, our focus changed to rehabilitation and small-scale development programmes as the country absorbed exiled and previously displaced groups.

Over the years World Vision has transitioned to large-scale community development programmes designed to address community needs, with a specific focus on children, using participatory planning approaches and ensuring sustainability.

Today, World Vision is the largest humanitarian organisation in Zimbabwe, operating relief and development projects across the country benefitting more than 2 million people each year.
