Welcome to ORAP
Every day for 37 years, we have worked towards our goals to eradicate poverty, include the marginalized, empower the rural poor, provide an alternative approach to development, and to preserve the best of the traditional and local culture. Our philosophy revolves around the core concept of Zenzele, which stems from the African saying Akusimuntu ongasimuntu walutho (“there is nobody who has no purpose”); a development process of self-discovery and self-mobilization administered by the self—not only for oneself but for the many. This concept guides and threads through all that ORAP does and is evident everywhere that we operate.
We work mostly in four provinces of Zimbabwe and are involved in both emergency food assistance and development work. Driving positive sustainable change in communities is our passion!
We love what we do, that is a fact. Learn more about the people behind ORAP who work towards our goal: To eradicate poverty!
