I have been selected to do something a bit different this summer and spend it learning about life in rural and urban Zimbabwe through volunteering with a charity called Progressio.
I will be in a team of 5-7 volunteers who will be making a real contribution to community development alongside local people and grassroots organisations. Whether this be in community engagement or awareness.
I will be keeping a blog up to date from 17th June, which is after a further training weekend, with the build-up and the progress of the trip up to the departure on 2nd July. During the trip I will, where possible, writing blogs and taking as many pictures as possible.
The £800 will go to Progressio, as the program is funded by the Department for International Development, the donation will help future participants and Progressio’s continuing work.

Event Details

Zimbabwe ICS

Progressio’s mission is to empower poor people to transform their lives and overcome the barriers which keep them poor. Progressio’s three thematic areas are HIV and AIDS, environmental sustainability and effective governance and participation with gender being a cross cutting theme in all of their work.
The situation in Zimbabwe continues to be characterised by the "triple threat" of poverty and food insecurity, weakened human and material capacity of government and high HIV and AIDS prevalence rates. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you can support me. If you would like any more information on the project please visit
