Empowering Mother Support Groups in Zimbabwe to Support Children

The first half of 2008 has seen the level of activity of Mother Support Groups (MSG) grow considerably in rural districts of Zimbabwe where Camfed works, as well as the level of need for their support. The capacity of these groups is being built and they are effectively working together to overcome the current difficulties faced within their communities.

Specific activities include district-level workshops (including one in Mount Darwin district, a focus area of this project, with representatives from 43 Mother Support Groups) in which members of the groups gained skills in leadership and business management. These skills have enabled them to establish successful projects, the profits from which they have used to support vulnerable children in their communities.

By supporting the continued activities of Mother Support Groups in Zimbabwe, this project is investing in the leadership of rural communities, ensuring they are empowered to play a key role in the education of their children.
