Safety and Inclusion (Zimbabwe)

This project aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of our partner, the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe, to support and protect vulnerable people by equipping church leaders with the knowledge and skills relating to child protection, gender-based violence (including sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment), disability inclusion and human trafficking, and developing church-wide policies and reporting mechanisms.

Current activities include improving the ability of the church, including church schools, to promote gender equality, safeguarding and disability inclusion, through training, implementation of policy and accountability mechanisms and awareness raising.


This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, we’re making a huge difference together.
