About us in brief
We have developed a holistic model premised on four thematic areas; Child Protection, Education, Health and Nutrition and Economic Strengthening.

Chiedza is a community-based NGO registered with the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Development in 2003, PVO 16/2003. It was established in 2001 by concerned professionals and citizens of Zimbabwe in response to the devastating impact of HIV and AIDS on children and families. They were touched by an increasing number of orphans as a result of AIDS-related deaths. With the advent of antiretroviral therapy, the organization continued to adapt responding to the impact of HIV and AIDS on children and their families.
