Company Details

Description
We are a faith based organization founded in 2014 by Pumuzile Mguni who is a former life coach for Blue Cross Namibia. Having helped establish BCNa in 2007 and worked there also part of Europe, he then moved to Zimbabwe where he saw the need to start the same movement in improving the life of Zimbabweans by introducing the SACP as the main project which looks at having a close dialogue with the youth helping fight the abuse of alcohol, drugs and other related substance.

Blue Cross Zimbabwe looks at helping those abusing and those using also those pressured to start using alcohol, drugs and other related substances as a way of running away from problems through running awareness programs in school, workplaces and community.

Sustainability of the Action Impact

The impact of the project will be felt directly or indirectly on many levels

At an economic and social level

By employing field workers and developing peer group leaders, poverty will be reduced and employment opportunities increased
By increasing awareness of the dangers of alcohol and drugs (and hopefully impacting positive choices) it is hoped that less people will fall into the trap of alcohol/drug misuse and therefore be more productive members of society which will in turn impact the economy of Zimbabwe and decrease other social problems associated with alcohol/drug misuse
By engaging the youth in healthy alternatives to alcohol and drugs and not giving them the opportunity to engage in negative pastimes we hope to lower opportunities for petty crime and gang violence as well as develop positive self-image within those participating and in turn strengthen communities
At National level

By advocating for the rights of marginalized groups (i.e. those affected by alcohol and drug abuse) it is hoped suitable policy documents will be drawn up at a national level
By being involved in policy development we have the opportunity to ensure policies developed are going to benefit all beneficiaries on the ground
At a Community and Regional level

By actively engaging communities in awareness and education campaigns we wish to encourage a change in public opinion relating the use of alcohol and drugs which will impact the amount of shebeens in given area as well as usage patterns of communities. By lowering these areas it will be extension lower other social issues related to high rates of alcohol and drugs risky sexual behavior, domestic violence etc…)
By lowering the rate of alcohol and drug use in the region, by extension, productivity and economic involvement should increase which will in turn benefit the region. It will also mean that regional spending on issues such as health care (for issues related to alcohol and drug related problems) will decrease and that money will be available to go into other areas.
