Years of political and economic crisis have thrown many people in Zimbabwe into abject poverty. Today eight out of ten people in the country are unemployed. With this number only set to rise, people have few options. Envision was set up following the election turmoil in 2008 which caused worsening political violence, a breakdown of infrastructure and a nationwide outbreak of cholera. Their aim is to bring diverse groups together to lead their own development.
Envision is mobilising women’s groups, interfaith groups and other community groups to take control of their own lives and the future of their communities.
