You may well remember from one of our previous posts that ECCT is now part of the National Aged Network of Zimbabwe along with other member organisations such as CCDS (Centre for Community Development Solutions), Zimbabwe Farmers Union, Agritex, Island Hospice, Ministry of Health and more. The Network’s objective is the betterment of health of the human being in Zimbabwe with emphasis on helping the aged and preventative measures for the population of Zimbabwe as we grow older.
From Sunday 29 March 2015 to Tuesday 31 March 2015, our Project Coordinator Clement Manika represented ECCT at the National Aged Network of Zimbabwe Annual Review Workshop in Zvishavane. Not only did this workshop discuss future projects, positive outcomes delivered and challenges faced in helping Older Persons in Zimbabwe – each organisation also discussed its role within Zimbabwe and what it brings to the ageing agenda.
One of the key issues identified at the workshop was that rural communities need continued empowerment through garden projects and NANZ will work to support these in the future.
Please see a few images from the successful workshop below.
