Who We Are

Zimbabwe Indigenous Women Farmers Association Trust

We are a trust for women farmers in Zimbabwe. The association was formed in February 2012 by Mrs Depina Nkomo and other six women farmers who saw the plight of women farmers when they would queue for inputs at Grain Marketing Boards. Some of the women were almost killed and abused as they would go to GMB in the early hours of the morning. Mrs Nkomo was one of the victim. They perceived that if they approach a company as a group they will receive attention, than as individuals. ZIWFAT has over 6000 members all over the ten (10) provinces. In each province, we have executive leadership from Provincial level to Ward level. The vision of ZIWFAT is to uplift all women farmers from grassroots level to boost and contribute to the national food security through agriculture.
