Zimbabwe is a country in South Africa known for its exceptional wildlife, and diverse landscapes. Much of the country is covered with parks, wildlife reserves, and safari. It is home to both the largest waterfall, and the largest man made lake on earth: Victoria Falls and Lake Kariba respectively. The country is also rich in spiritual tradition. The instrument Mbira is used in ceremonies in order to contact the deceased or chase away harmful spirits.
Ethnically, Zimbabwe is roughly 98% African, with that being split into two main groups, the Shona, and the Ndebele which both have an official language sharing the same name as each group as well. Shona, and Ndebele are considered “Bantu-languages” because they have a similar linguistic origin. Roughly 80% of the population speaks Shona alone.
Zimbabwe holds the world record for most official languages with sixteen
Currently, Zimbabwe’s poverty rate is being driven up rapidly by hyperinflation, and a shrinking economy. In 2010 Zimbabwe had the highest unemployment rate at nearly 95%. Not only is the poverty rate of great concern, it feeds into many other issues, like a chronic lack of education in more rural areas, and an inability to implement sanitary practices into community living. HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria are all culprits leading to the death of hundreds of individuals per year.

General Summary of our work: Importance of our work section and some of the impacts: Medical literacy business finance photography speech and debate stem classes as well
Strive2Thrive Edu aims to provide quality education at no burden or cost to its students. By working with local organizations and schools Strive2Thrive is not only able to provide education to those who would not otherwise be able to continue it, they can also aid local teams in implementing procedures and programs that will survive long past this current generation of students. Through project Zimbabwe we offer a diverse range of classes in subjects such as Medical literacy, business, finance, photography, speech and debate, and other stem fields. These classes offer students the ability to explore new interests, develop new hobbies, or pick up increasingly necessary job skills that will aid them in their future careers such as technological literacy, and finance
