Connecting communities and culture
We are an independent, non-political affiliated charity, working directly with people in different communities in Zimbabwe. Working in partnership with these communities enable us to seek holistic approaches to find solutions to overcome challenges brought by poverty and climate change. We believe in a fairer world, where people have the opportunity to work and to be able to support themselves and their families.
Fair-Trade is an important aspect of our work because we are helping individuals and groups to start their own businesses, making African arts and crafts, and get a fair price for them. We are associated to Love Zimbabwe Fair Trade, which is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that sells the goods in the UK. Their products can be bought online through their Etsy page.

Education is the foundation
A very important part of what we do is to educate the wider community around us, in Wales and Zimbabwe, about what Fair-Trade means and why it is important. This ranges from educating children in Welsh schools about Fair-Trade and African culture, to providing skills workshops for Zimbabweans to start their own businesses.
We have recently finished building a library and learning centre for the community. For more information about the library, please click here.
