About Us

The Specific Objectives of the Bristol Zimbabwe Association

1. To advocate issues of concern to the Zimbabwean community in Bristol.

We do this through:

* Providing advice and guidance on education, training, employment, health and social care;
* Disseminating quality information on issues which matter to them;
* Organising culturally sensitive customised training programmes;
* Influencing/Lobbying policy makers;
* Being committed to Zimbabwean community in Bristol – being consistent and clear about our service provision, not diluting our principles of support to Zimbabwean community.

2. To promote and raise awareness of the public and decision-makers about the needs and aspirations of the Zimbabwean community, as well as about their positive contributions to UK society particularly those in the Bristol area.

We do this through:

* Organising conferences and meetings;
* Participating in networks, fora and conferences;
* Production of quality research documents.

3. Provide a model of good practice, showing a way of overcoming difficulties between different groups and people of different backgrounds.

We do this through:

* Setting examples of good models of practice in partnership work;
* Encouraging people of Zimbabwe to work together with all other nationalities;
* Promoting networking.
* Creating sound practical policies and procedures.
* Building a network of friends of the people of Zimbabwe

4. To promote and preserve the Zimbabwe culture and heritage

* Organising events such as celebrating the Zimbabwe Independence day;

5. Try to find ways of helping the people in need back home in Zimbabwe particularly Aids orphans.

* Organise fundraising events to raise school fees, food and clothes for the young people
