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.

As a priority status 1 country, we will contribute to national capability for humanitarian response where the right to life and security for communities, households and individuals, especially women and children, is realized. We will achieve this by building capacity of national partners and government bodies to effectively respond to humanitarian emergencies and reduce community risk and vulnerabilities to hazards. We will maintain key operational capabilities within Oxfam in order to facilitate capacity building and assist in response initiatives when necessary. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Emergency Food Security and Vulnerable Livelihoods (EFSVL) and Protection will remain core focal areas, with an emphasis on market-based methodologies and applied research into innovative technologies and approaches. In recognition of the fluid country environment, a review of the country’s Priority 1 status will take place in 2018.

    On behalf of the Dula Community, l would like to send our Project Proposal to provide safe drinking water and sanitation to our 2 Schools and Clinic in Ward 11 of UMzingwane District in Matebeleland South Zimbabwe.

    The situation is dire with children having to travel more than 2km away from school to fetch water from canals flowing from rocky mountains.

    I am willing to provide more information upon request as well as the Project Proposal upon request.

    I am looking forward to your favourable response at the earliest convenience.
