Thematic Areas

Disability Inclusion

People with disabilities (PWD) in developing countries are often faced with exclusion and discrimination. Focusing on a more inclusive society, Harambe Trust encompasses educational and entrepreneurship training which give equal opportunities of empowerment to PWD.  

Inmate Rehabilitation

The engagement in new crimes and re-incarceration of ex-offenders highlights the uphill battle faced by the Prisons and Correctional Services in their efforts to rehabilitate and reintergrate convicted persons.

Youth Empowerment

The Zimbabwean youth are regarded as one of the poorest youth groups in the world (ILO, 2016), mostly as a result of unemployment and limited resources. This program aims to empower youth in Zimbabwe through education, employment and entrepreneurship increasing their contribution to the development of their community and the country.

Gender Equity

The term feminisation of poverty is used to express the continuity and prevalence of poverty amongst women. Women constitute most of the poor, as a result gender and poverty are intertwined. In female-headed households in Zimbabwe there are 83% incidences of poverty compared to 81% for male headed households.
