Welcome to Zimcare Trust

Zimcare Trust is a registered Private Voluntary Organization (P.V.O 57/82) for the care and education of the mentally challenged persons in Zimbabwe. The Organisation came into being as a result of the amalgamation of four different organizations that catered for the mentally challenged persons. Our overall goal is to improve the lives of people living with intellectual challenges in Zimbabwe through access to education, care and skills development.

Our Vision

To be the leading Private Voluntary Organisation in the creation of an enabling environment in which learning and care programmes are tailor- made to suit the special needs of persons who are intellectually challenged so that they can acquire and use life skills.
