GOOD DEEDS DAY IN ZIMBABWE
Good Deeds Day in Zimbabwe was launched in September 2018 by the Mayor of Gweru Josiah Makombe who is also the patron of the network. The event was attended by about 15 organizations based in Southern Zimbabwe.
GDD events in Zimbabwe commenced in April 2018 with less than 5 organizations participating countrywide. Save Our Environment Trust, a Nonprofit organization, organized an event at a children’s rehabilitation home where we donated school stationery, food packs, planted trees, conducted a clean-up campaign, and had fun and games with the children. The event was attended by students from Midlands State University, officials from the Forestry Commission, Environment Management Agency, and Ministry of Social Welfare.
In 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, engagements were mostly online. However, before the onset of the pandemic, the Good Deeds Day CEO visited Zimbabwe where he engaged with leaders of the Zimbabwe Network. Good Deeds Day Zimbabwe virtually set up about 10 GDD networks across the country and conducted a COVID-19 Relief and Support project through the support of GDD International, donating food hampers and COVID-19 PPE materials to 400 people in both urban and rural communities. In addition, distributed 100 sanitary pad packs to young girls in rural communities.
In 2021 we had GDD physical and virtual events in the following cities: Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru, Mutare, Kadoma, Chiwundura, Zvishavane, and Beitbridge.

COVID-19 has worsened issues in Zimbabwe like food security, SRH access among young girls, school dropouts due to the increase in school fees and lack of school stationery, neglect of foster care/charity homes, increase in substance abuse among adolescents, and lack of access to COVID PPE materials in both rural and urban communities. In addition, waste management and littering have worsened.
