In 2013, the Government of Zimbabwe enacted law which stipulates that the government must consider youth quota on government programs. In 2018, the government further incorporated agriculture on the school curriculum. Bolstered by the existence of the aforementioned provisions coupled, 2018 saw the formation of 4-H Zimbabwe Foundation as a complimentary arm of the government programs.
At the time of its formation, the management was done on voluntarily basis by the Secretariat and Board members and funded by the Founder member as a visionary of the cause. It was only in 2019 that 4-H Zimbabwe became an independent non-profit making organisation registered as a Trust in September 2019 and registered under Zimbabwe Youth Council.
Since the establishment of a secretariat, 4-H Zimbabwe has been involved in a number of programmes related to youth development, nurturing of school children through establishing of agric-clubs, School girl-clubs at some local schools, schools public debates, networking and collaborations with relevant stakeholders.
The two arms of the Foundation i.e. the Board of Trustees and Secretariat designed the strategic planning document.
Key partners are Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement, Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education Science and Technology Development, Ministry of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation, the District Administrators, parents, community leaders, CBO’s, churches, corporate bodies, champion farmers, children’s homes and other interested entities or individuals.
