About Us

Our aim is to improve educational opportunities in rural Zimbabwe and to provide new facilities and resources, by working in partnership with schools and other institutions.

Zimbabwe Rural Schools Development Programme was established and registered as a charity in 2001 (Reg. Charity No. 1085718). Many of the people involved with the charity have spent time teaching in rural Zimbabwe, witnessing at first hand the lack of educational opportunity afforded to so many children.

Since 2001, you have helped us to raise more than £250,000, which we have spent building and furnishing new classrooms and other educational facilities in rural Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe’s plight over recent years has been extensively covered in the press. However, Zimbabwe Rural Schools Development Programme remains an entirely apolitical and non-religious organisation. By working with our contacts in Zimbabwe, we direct our funds where we believe they will have the highest impact. ZRSDP has continued to help year after year.
