Zero coordinates, catalyses, facilitates and evaluates all types and levels of development projects in the region.
Policy advocacy is also a role Zero plays evolving out of research conducted and programs implemented. We know from experience the how and the why of what works
in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.
Projects developed and administered by Zero include agricultural productivity and land resources issues. For example, wind pattern studies have been carried out leading to the development and erection of wind turbine electrical generation plants. These have been used to power irrigation farming in, and bring electricity to, rural Zimbabwe.
Zero also develops other renewable energy sources, appropriate technology and stimulates income generation models in rural areas. SADC cross border trade development and support projects fit well into Zero’s regional role as a trade and employment catalyst and facilitator. Agricultural and climate change research and project proposals, programs addressing gender and HIV and AIDS issues have also been areas of focus.
Zimbabwe Women Centre and Resource Network (ZWRCN)
The Zimbabwe Women’s Resource Centre and Network (ZWRCN) is a non- governmental organization committed to promoting women’s social and economic justice in Zimbabwe and globally, through the power of information, networking and strategic advocacy. We were established in 1990.
We are motivated by the belief that all human beings must fully enjoy the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), and the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development, among other gender equality instruments. These human rights instruments affirm that ‘women’s rights are human rights’ and recognize the inherent rights of every person whether male or female. In this respect, ZWRCN stands for Women’s Human Rights.

Development Reality Institute
Believes that neither one person nor organization can single-handedly be responsible for human development. We know for a fact that it takes the collective effort of many actors, working towards one goal. The most important and central characters in the development script, are the communities we seek to serve. DRI channels the sum of all its efforts to delivery through four strategic focus areas, which are Climate Change, Social innovation, The Sustainable Development Goals and ICT Innovation.
