The Fit for Life Project is an Educational Development project that strives to provide a second chance education opportunity to children between 15 and 18 years who did not complete Primary education. The project will aim to improve the livelihoods of at least 30.000 rural children by providing a literacy/numeracy module followed by an agriculture-based technical education in Zimbabwe.
The project is implemented by a consortium of well-established partners with experience in education, vocational training and agricultural-based technical skills enhancement with a wide thematic coverage from crop production to livestock. The Zimbabwe Farmer’s Union (ZFU) is the lead organisation and implements the project in partnership with:
- Cotton Training Centre (CTC),
- Foundations for Farming (FfF) and
- Kushinga Phikelela National Farmer Training Centre (KP)
The consortium is working closely with the Department of Non Formal Education in the Ministry for Primary and Secondary Education (MoPSE) as the project is funded by the Ministry’s/UNICEF Educational Transitional Fund II and based on a Memorandum of Understanding of MoPSE with the ZFU.
