Mwenezi district is the poorest district in Zimbabwe and characterised by marginal subsistence agriculture and unemployment.
The Centre has around 8000 members headed by a Board of Trustees and operates with the support of donors and the community.
Practical programmes include support services for local artisans, a micro finance scheme, a tool making workshop, water conservation and erosion control schemes, grain banks, and delivery of disaster relief.
Enterprises run by the Centre include broiler production, toolmaking, carpentry shop, rabbitry and market garden. The Centre also provides accommodation and conference facilities and sells a range of products.
The Centre is seeking resource partners for new initiatives.
The Centre is establishing a new website at mdtc.co.zw. You can read about the Centre and the district in more detail here. The Masvingo Mirror published this profile article. There is a Facebook page
The centre is able to assist other development organisations to operate in the area by giving them access to office space, transport, skilled staff and a local network of providers and stakeholders.
