About Chiedza

Chiedza is a local non-governmental organisation established in 2001 and registered with the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare in 2003, PVO 58/23  with operations in Harare South and Zvimba rural districts.

Primarily then, Chiedza’s focus was  to respond to the impact of HIV and AIDS through offering meals and early childhood education services to children who had been orphaned due to AIDS-related illnesses.


Over the years, with the advent of anti-retroviral drugs, the quality of HIV infected people began to improve and  the organisation adjusted its programs to respond broadly to the impact of HIV and AIDS on children and families targetting both infected and affected. This broadened its scope geographically and programmatically. Chiedza designed appropriate programs that are effective in delivering results for orphaned and other vulnerable children in urban, peri-urban and rural areas.

Currently, Chiedza has developed a holistic model premised on four thematic areas; Child Protection, Education, Health and Nutrition and Economic Strengthening. Program areas of strength include early childhood education, general education support, non-formal education, vocational training, inclusive education for children with disability, Paediatric HIV,  sexual reproductive health rights, case management, systems strengthening, child protection, health, nutrition and economic strengthening.
