About Nhaka Afrikan Worldview Trust (NAWT)

NAWT has put heritage (Nhaka) as the centre of any developmental activity we embark on. In this endeavor we can sum up our identity as follows:

  • At our heart is a set of principles on how to create development and to mobilize resources with willing partners. The countless partners, national and international have supported our work and share the same ethos.
  • Our development work is anchored on five thematic areas which are heritage, youth and women empowerment, and orphans and vulnerable children, health, hygiene and sanitation, climate change environment and conservation.

Nhaka Afrikan Worldview Trust (NAWT) is registered under the laws of Zimbabwe as a Trust - MA 305 / 2007. Since 2005 a strong base of community work has been developed in Zimbabwe particularly in Manicaland Province, Mutasa District.

Our Journey Through Time

Nhaka Afrikan Worldview Trust (NAWT) traces its roots back to 2005 when it was established as a Community Based Organization. The organization's initial focus was to provide assistance to socially challenged individuals, with a particular emphasis on orphans and vulnerable children in Mutasa District, Zimbabwe.

The year 2007 marked a significant milestone as NAWT transitioned to formalize its structure, registering as a Trust. Embracing low-cost development approaches, the organization continued its commitment to making a positive impact in the community.

In 2009, with crucial funding, NAWT embarked on expansive initiatives, including the establishment of nutrition gardens, skills training for youths, and the provision of support for orphaned children's school fees. These efforts aimed to address the multifaceted challenges faced by the community and promote sustainable development.

NAWT's dedication to water harvesting has been an enduring aspect of its mission. Over the years, activities in 2021 and 2022 involved substantial projects, including the construction of a large reservoir, contributing to water resource management and community sustainability.

Building on its successes, in 2023, NAWT extended its reach to Umguza District, introducing water conservation measures to address environmental concerns and enhance the resilience of the local community.
