  • Title: Situation in Zimbabwe : Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust
    Descriptive info: In the year 2000, Mugabe began his extraordinary efforts to destroy the ‘white’ farming community.. Only about 150 original farmers of 4000 survive on their farms and ALL of them have been listed for eviction.. It seems extraordinary that President Mugabe could be so bent on the destruction of the once highly effective agricultural community at the expense of his entire nation.. We are however very pleased to see that an Agricultural Task Force, which includes the CFU, has been set up under Professor Mandivamba Rukuni to establish a way forward for the future of Agriculture.. The Government of National Unity, seen as a very progressive step forward has almost ground to a halt.. President Mugabe has used it as a lifeline, rather than take the offer of partnership as a way forward.. It seems that the will of ZANUpf to participate within the process is lacking and as a consequence, despite initial excitement, all progress has dissipated.. We are all aware that the President is  ...   to establish a new way forward.. We see the next 3-5 years as a transitionary period during which the opportunity for Zimbabwe to become the model for post-colonial development in Africa will be at its greatest.. For more in depth information on the current situation in Zimbabwe, please go to.. http://www.. crisisgroup.. org/en/regions/africa/southern-africa/zimbabwe.. aspx.. Elections have been called for 2012 and political violence has once more erupted across the country.. Both President Mugabe and PM Tsvangirai have called for an end to violence in a joint statement to all senior members of their respective parties, but it remains to be seen whether this will have any effect.. See the website.. www.. sokwanele.. com.. for regular updates on Zimbabwe’s escalating challenges.. Whilst there has been much hardship amongst the farming community, particularly amongst the farm workers, an extraordinary internal support system has developed amongst the farmers with many supporting each other and others going out and doing wonderful work with the remnant groups of their previous employees..

  • Title: Our Current Projects : Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust
    Descriptive info: Many of our projects remain the same as those in previous years as there is continuity and definite progress which comes from the regular support of these projects.. We focus on projects related to.. Workforce Support.. Education.. Healthcare.. We are often forced to embark on projects and commitments without adequate funding in place in the first instance, and to source the funds as we go along.. As a result of this we appeal several times a year to the General Public in the countries in which we operate, as well as to a select group  ...   and corporate bodies, both in Zimbabwe and in the UK.. But whilst this is the most critical area of need as far as we are concerned, we also have a great need of help in several other areas at the moment.. Please run your eye down the menu at the top and to the right, and if you are in a position to help, offer your time, resources or even advice on any of the areas, please.. contact us.. with what you are willing able to contribute to, and we will be in touch by return..

  • Title: About Us : Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust
    Descriptive info: ZAWT (The Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust) was founded in 2001, and has since inception been run, administered and gained all its funding solely through the efforts of its board of Trustees and many volunteers both in Zimbabwe and abroad who have given generously of their time.. All funds raised go directly to our project in Zimbabwe.. ZAWT has no administration or other overhead, we pay no salaries, we have no costs which are not born directly by volunteeers and Trustees.. Some of our Trustees have opted to remain anonymous given the real threat of danger to family and friends in Zimbabwe, and to do so have special dispensation from the Charities Commission in the UK.. Others feel no threat due to lighter links, and no family in Zimbabwe and thus are happy to be publicly named.. We are  ...   and every Trustee and Voluteer has firm roots in Zimbabwe, and indeed most still have family and certainly many friends still there, hence the need for anonimity in many cases.. There are regular visits to Zimbabwe to meet with the Trustees and Volunteers there, in order that we are kept fully and completely in the picture as to the situation at all times.. There are 5 Trustees in the UK ( Scotland), most of whom have opted to exercise their right to anonimity because of a threat to their families and/or their personal interests.. If you would like to write to us or send a donation to help us in our work you may use the following Postal Address.. The ZAWT Trustees.. c/o 20 Green Street.. Sunbury on Thames.. Middlesex..

A number of these children live in a dreadful squatter camp nearby, and until we became involved had to carry water with them the 4 kms to school for use during the entire day.. We have installed a borehole at the school which has enabled them to not only provide drinking water, but also run a  ...   with this, we are paying the school fees for 25 of the children who are not in a position to do so.. We are also provide fuel for an extraordinary priest called Rev Matomba who spends his life searching out and providing for these children..

  • Title: Ngonyama Feeding Scheme : Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust
    Descriptive info: The.. near Bulawayo, is feeding upwards of 200 children one good meal a week.. They attend a school nearby (when it is operating) but most come from homes where they are unable to eat regularly as a consequence of the situation.. This meal provides them with the basic sustenance they need to keep going week by week in really challenging circumstances.. We also support the.. Ngonyama School,.. helping them to develop a school garden in which all students are taught the basics of farming using simple and effective methods.. We have also repaired their entire electrical system  ...   by assisting in maintenance work at the school.. For example, the repair of desks and chairs, the making of school uniforms, the repainting of the school, the building of a new playground.. We have also provided funding for the school fees of the 92 orphans at the school.. ZAWT has provided funds for the building of 2 new classrooms.. The process is underway now which will relieve the already crowded school, and we hope that the project will be completed in the New Year.. This work is very well received and is proving to be very effective..

  • Title: Nyamandhlovu farm school : Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust
    Descriptive info: Nyamandhlovu farm school.. is a new project.. The school, which caters for over 300 former farm labourer’s children, is in considerable disrepair.. Two classrooms have no roof at all (owing to a storm) and one classroom holds 80 children, roughly half facing in opposite directions with separate teachers teaching them in the same room at the same time.. There are very few desks and very few exercise books.. ZAWT is currently organising for exercise and text books, the making of new desks  ...   the repair of the roof for the two classrooms.. A self-help arrangement has been made with the parents who are working on such projects as repainting the school which is working very effectively.. We have recently assisted the children by part funding a school trip to Victoria Falls and to the Victoria Falls Game Reserve.. This was the first time these children have been on such a trip and the excitement was palpable.. We envisage much progress with this project in the future..
