Abstract: Development partners of SNV in Bulilima, Mangwe and Plumtree Districts in Zimbabwe are breaking new grounds in dealing with challenges that have kept more than 20,000 orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) out of school. This follows a successful community based economic enterprise initiative facilitated by SNV, UNICEF and local development partners that has ploughed back profits from their businesses to the tune of US$200,000 to finance the education of Orphans and other Vulnerable Children. The initiative is discussed in this report.
