The National Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (NANGO) is a non-party political, non-profit making and non-denominational coordinating body of NGOs in Zimbabwe. It takes a leading role in facilitating the harmonization and collaboration between and among NGOs with their stakeholders including public and private sectors towards national development goals.

We are partners with:-

3. Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC)
ZWRCN works with the Ministry of Health in the roll out of the Gender and Health Budgets project. The project seeks to address women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) rights in Zimbabwe through advocacy and research aimed at promoting equitable allocation of national resources that will address women’s practical and strategic needs. The project is currently piloting in 2 districts (Mutoko and Shurugwi). The overall development goal of the project is “Women’ s empowerment through building capacity to demand their sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) from local and national health service providers in Shurugwi and Mutoko rural districts”.

4. Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Gender and Community Development (MWAGCD)
ZWRCN works with Ministry of Women Affairs, Gender and Community Development to implement its programmes, including the National Gender Budgeting and Economic Empowerment Project. This project seeks to influence national policy and budgets to mainstream gender in the process of policy formulation, implementation and resource allocation. The National project also has a specific focus on Gender and Health Budgets, a Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Campaign and Medical Outreach Programme.

5. Parliament of Zimbabwe
ZWRCN is in partnership with the Parliament of Zimbabwe to support gender mainstreaming efforts in the administration of Parliament, as well as build the capacity of elected officials to discharge their mandate effectively. The organisation thus works with various Parliamentary Portfolio Committees, as well as the Zimbabwe Women Parliamentary Caucus.

6. Women's University in Africa
ZWRCN entered into a partnership with Women’s University in Africa in 2009. The Women’s University in Africa (WUA) provides quality tuition, research and service to the community to empower students, particularly women, for leadership and developmental roles. WUA and ZWRCN share the same vision of empowering women and girls through nurturing their talents by supporting their academic development and preparing them for strategic roles in their communities, the nation and beyond. Thus far ZWRCN has, through the Eve Zinhanga Scholarship Fund, supported almost 20 young women with scholarships to undertake academic studies at WUA in various disciplines. The objectives of the partnership also include promoting gender equality research, joint dissemination of information on gender and development issues, and conducting joint training initiatives. ZWRCN sits on the WUA Council, which is the policy and oversight body of the university.
