We Are United in Our Dedication to the vision of a Zimbabwe without malnutrition.
Our Overall Program includes, but not limited to...
Capacitating and supporting lower-level nutrition governance structures to be able to plan, implement and monitor nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions aimed at curbing all forms of malnutrition. This is meant to complement activities through the government led multi-sectoral community-based model for stunting reduction.
The organization also implements multisector emergency interventions for vulnerable Zimbabweans affected by the protracted drought and socioeconomic crisis. The objectives are to improved access to food through recovered agricultural livelihoods, and to improve access of quantity and quality of water and sanitation for drought affected communities and ensure hygiene coping capacities are enhanced.
NAZ also support farmers, their households, and communities to diversify, intensify, and commercialize their crop and livestock production to build their assets and be more able to absorb, adapt, and transform in the face of climate, economic, and other shocks, allowing them to live healthier and more productive lives.
