Challenge

Chipo Chedu targets Zimbabweans with a thrust towards some 5% of the 12 million people, who are childless women. By virtue of their being involuntarily childless, these women are disadvantaged and marginalized. Project seeks to address problems arising from childlessness, starting with a change of societal attitude towards the childless which has led to the break up of marriages, resulted in health problems like depression and HIV/AIDS. Project reaches 21 of 58 districts in the country.

Solution

Conduct public discussions, mount exhibitions, distribute flyers and launch a web site to create awareness of childless situations. Advocate on behalf of childless and provide structured counseling services. Maintain information and networking

Long-Term Impact

De-stigmatize childlessness among all groups of people in Zimbabwe through increases awareness and acceptance of the problem. Help reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS among the community as childless people, as many of them fail to handle the ostracisation
