WHO WE ARE
Amnesty International-Zimbabwe is a section of the Amnesty-International a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally. We are campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.
We are funded by members and people like you. We are independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. No government is beyond scrutiny. No situation is beyond hope.
Few would have predicted when we started that torturers would become international outlaws. That most countries would abolish the death penalty. And seemingly untouchable dictators would be made to answer for their crimes.
AIZ is a membership based organization with a membership base of more than 10 thousand members around Zimbabwe and more than 7million members globally. AI Zimbabwe was established in 1999 focussing on Human Rights Education (HRE) and awareness-raising of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights in Zimbabwe. Since 2006 the growth of AIZ took a different turn with both positive and negative outlook. During this period AI Zimbabwe was repositioning itself in line with International Strategic Plan. This enabled AI Zimbabwe activists, members and supporters to undertake coordinated actions in support of AI’s vision, mission and human rights work.
AI Zimbabwe has experienced a relative and incremental growth since 2006; Without a strong membership, AIZ cannot be maximally effective.
