Insiza District is located in the Matabeleland South province of Zimbabwe. This part of the country is generally not as privileged as the Northern provinces, largely due to its semi-arid climate and lack of diverse economic opportunities. However, the people of Insiza are driven and have a desire to see progress in their community. A major challenge is the constant migration of young people in search of economic opportunities.
High poverty levels, under development, poor health facilities, HIV/AIDS, harsh economic environment, and high levels of unemployment contribute to the ever increasing number of orphaned and vulnerable children.
Research has revealed that about 80% of children between the ages of 0-7 years are either orphaned or vulnerable. We believe there are thousands of orphans and other vulnerable children in this region.
