Welcome to ZHEERA Trust, an organization dedicated to empowering women and creating a transformed society. Our mission is to promote social change and justice for women and girls by providing opportunities and platforms that uphold their rights and empower them.
ZHEERA, derived from the Shona word meaning “the road,” represents the founder’s personal journey and struggles as a woman and single parent. It signifies the various paths and challenges women face in their lives. Inspired by this understanding, ZHEERA Trust was established in 2019 to support and build the capacities of women and girls.
Our organization focuses on providing knowledge about sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) through community dialogues and workshops. We believe in the power of collective support, listening, and finding solutions to the issues affecting women. By embracing the concept of the road or journey, we encourage women to navigate their paths while holding each other’s hands.
At ZHEERA Trust, we uphold core values of empowerment, justice, and equality. We are dedicated to promoting gender equality and dismantling patriarchal systems. Our programs also emphasize skills development, socio-economic empowerment, and political inclusivity, ensuring that women have the tools they need to succeed in all aspects of life.
Through a multifaceted approach that includes community dialogues, training workshops, talk shows, storytelling, magazine publications, and music and drama, we engage with our target groups. We provide practical knowledge, support, and resources to empower women, enabling them to enhance their economic independence, make informed decisions about their health and well-being, and challenge societal norms.
Join us on our journey towards a society that values equality, justice, and solidarity. Together, we can make a difference and build a better future for women and girls. Explore our programs, get involved, and help us empower women for a transformed society.
