AFSC’s fundamental goal is to build sustainable and peaceful communities in Zimbabwe.

Our work is premised on the Quaker belief that there is that of God in every person, leading us to respect the dignity and worth of all people.

Our objectives

AFSC helps to foster peace, community cohesion, and resilience. In partnership with local organisations and the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development, we work in communities in Harare, Bulawayo, Marondera, Goromonzi, and Binga.

Over the past 10 years, we have helped transform communities and structures by:

  • Helping youth and women develop life skills and sustainable livelihoods.
  • Supporting communities in advocacy efforts with their local authorities.
  • Promoting post-conflict healing and reconciliation.

Our work has evolved to include research and dialogue on conflict-sensitive business approaches; enhancing the capacity of civil society groups and faith-based organisations to engage in conflict analysis and mediation; and improving the economic and social development of peri-urban communities through infrastructure development.
