Gateway Zimbabwe has launched online fundraising campaigns for community initiatives by the Gateway Fellows. Each fundraising campaign is accompanied by a video proposal in which the Fellows outline the various challenges being addressed by their community initiatives, as well as the contributions they are making towards building strong and healthy communities, in ways that put authentic relational connections that build trust and social cohesion at the core.

These video proposals are an invitation to a unique opportunity to partner with the Gateway Zimbabwe Fellows, by funding these grassroots initiatives. They are a call to all Zimbabweans, both at home and in the diaspora, to philanthropists, to Pan-Africanists and to the world to become part of the journey through these home-grown, community-led projects by this remarkable group of community leaders. #CommunityIsTheAnswer!!

We appreciate all donations in support of the Gateway Fellows

The video proposals were created by the first cohort of Gateway Zimbabwe Fellows, who completed an online series of participatory video-making workshops between October 2020 and March 2021, facilitated by Dr Pamela Richardson-Ngwenya, under the ‘Make It Grow’ project, which supports community-based food initiatives to access grants through participatory video proposals. ‘Make It Grow’ is a Knowledge Exchange project from the University of Sheffield’s Institute for Sustainable Food.
