our work in Zimbabwe

In Zimbabwe, JRS provides skills training to refugees in the Tongogara refugee camp and services to both refugees and local Zimbabweans through a pastoral programme. The trainings cover topics like motor mechanics, carpentry, agriculture, computing, hairdressing, cosmetology, and sewing. JRS also supports the secondary school in Tongogara with infrastructure, uniforms, and books.
