Oxfam in Zimbabwe Vision
A Zimbabwe where empowered active citizens enjoy their rights and have a dignified life.
Realising our Vision
Oxfam in Zimbabwe developed four country goals. The realisation of these goals will address the root causes of poverty and marginalisation of Zimbabweans leading them to enjoy their rights and have a dignified life.
Goal 1: Smallholder farmers, especially women and youth in the targeted programme regions are more resilient, have the capacity to manage risks and achieve food security.
Goal 2: Poor and marginalised women and youth become active citizen, challenging unequal power relations and influencing the management and utilization of natural and public resources.
Goal 3: Women are enabled to claim, exercise and enjoy their rights to leadership and decision making, economic empowerment, sexual and reproductive health rights.
Goal 4: Partners and Oxfam have greater capacity to respond to humanitarian crises, reduce vulnerable households’ risks to hazards and improve their ability to recover from shocks.
Oxfam in Zimbabwe aspires to make a sustained and significant positive impact on poverty and injustice and it is only through the collective effort of many actors (civil society, private sector, collectives , associations, movements and communities ) that this aspiration can be achieved. Each of these actors has a role to play in accordance with its responsibility, legitimacy, its capacities and strengths, while holding duty bearers to account for their commitments. Oxfam believes in the collective responsibility that it shares with other international originations to contribute to a stronger civil society in the country as part of a broad process that contribute to sustained citizen participation poverty alleviation and national development. Therefore, our partnership model extends to include capacity support, creating opportunities for engagement and influencing.
