We began working in Zimbabwe in 2010, using a variety of media and community based outreach programs to involve women and youth in peacebuilding processes. Our flagship project, The Team Zimbabwe, started in 2011; a great success among local audiences, it has been nominated for Best Series at FESPACO, the largest film festival in Africa.
