Welcome to Basilwizi – “People of the Great River”

Basilwizi Trust is a community development organization, founded in 2002 by the local people of the Zambezi valley, north western part of Zimbabwe. The existence of Basilwizi Trust is a demonstration of concern and determination by Zambezi valley communities to demand and restore their dignity taken away from them by the displacement from the Zambezi River banks. Poverty, the main cause of vulnerability to food insecurity, is one of the defining features of the Zambezi valley. The Zambezi valley districts rank least on the Zimbabwe development index and yet they have great potential to be better from the vast natural resources found in the region. Thus Basilwizi works to assist the communities of Binga, Gokwe north, Hwange and Nyaminyami administrative districts to realize own development and emancipation from extreme poverty through community led interventions.

On the 27th of October 2011, Basilwizi handed over the Public Access Point (PAP) at Binga Library to Binga Rural District Council in a bid to improve information access in the district. Basilwizi is an organisation operating in Binga with an objective of developing Tonga communities. It has taken over the Tonga.Online project after it was realised that its funding base has dwindled. The Public Access Point will afford the local community access to information through internet services.


The second quarter of 2011 has been a mixed bag for Basilwizi with funding challenges and a corresponding increase in community needs. The report here presents how the organisation managed to steer through the challenges and serve the community with the little resources available..
