YOUTH ALIVE ZIMBABWE (YAZIM )
Go for the goal of life:
We Educate to Transform and Empower
Youth Alive Zimbabwe (YA Zim) is a positive peer support group. Based on Christian faith and values, it welcomes youth of all denominations and beliefs. The overall objective of Youth Alive Zimbabwe is to empower young people to make responsible, life-giving choices so that they can live positive, healthy and fulfilling lives. It encourages the young people making this choice to be a positive and constructive influence to their peers and to use this positive peer pressure to support and encourage each other to live positively. Youth Alive activities began in Zimbabwe following the first Education For Life –a Behaviour Change Process (EFL-BCP) workshop in April 1999. Sr Miriam Duggan organized the workshop in conjunction with the Bishop’s Office, Mutare Diocese for Parish and Youth Leaders from Mutare and Harare Dioceses.The need for Youth Alive in Zimbabwe was recognized if these workshops were to continue and also as a tool to ensure the support and sustainability of non-risk behaviour in young people after the workshops.
Our mission is to address behaviour change, upholding good values and develop young people of integrity, service and good character; people who understand their purpose of life and live exemplary lives.
To develop an AIDS free generation where young people can enjoy the fullness of life.
• We believe that every person has the right to grow towards his/her unique potential in an enabling environment.
• We believe in abstinence before marriage and faithfulness to a lifelong partner within marriage.
• We believe that all individuals and communities have the inherent capacity to change attitudes and behaviours.
• We believe behaviour change is the only essential strategy in overcoming the HIV pandemic.
Diocese Of Mutare Community Care Programme DOMCCP
Diocese of Mutare Community Care Programme (DOMCCP) is a community based organisation working in Manicaland Province of Zimbabwe. Established in 1992 as a Trust, the original focus of DOMCCP was set on reducing the impact of HIV and AIDS through the home-based care programme. This was at a time when there was no anti-retroviral treatment (ART) and many HIV positive people were discharged from healthcare facilities to the care of their families at home. However, the passage of time witnessed an evolution of the AIDS pandemic and the advent of anti-retroviral treatment, which reduced the burden of care from communities. This saw DOMCCP transforming its focus and strategies to address contemporary health and development challenges of communities, especially the marginalized. In 2015, DOMCCP was registered as a Private Voluntary Organisation (PVO) in compliance with the laws of Zimbabwe, showing our serious intention to continue serving the needy with greater accountability within the confines of the law. Our work is guided by successive five-year strategic plans which seek to address challenges facing the people that we work with, in order to improve their lives.
Healthy, empowered and productive communities.
Empower communities to own their development for sustainability and improved standards of
