ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Save the Children (UK) greatly appreciates the support of the local authorities in Siakobvu and Kariba in assisting with the preparation for this assessment, and in providing staff to participate in the information collection. The participation of the following departments and organisations was vital for the success of the assessment:
  • Kariba District Administrator's Office
  • Nyaminyami Rural District Council (Drought Relief Office)
  • Ministry of Health and Child Welfare
  • Agritex
  • Department of Social Welfare
  • Department of Veterinary Services
Our thanks also go to the Department of Social Welfare in Hwange for seconding an officer trained in the Household Economy Approach to participating the assessment.

The assessment could not have taken place without the participation of the Chiefs, Councillors, headmasters and teachers, and especially the communities in Nyaminyami in interviews.
