Issues in Education on Commercial Farms in Zimbabwe



Although Zimbabwe has shown a strong commitment to improving educational access and quality, overall enrollment figures conceal major regional disparities and the lack of education and services in marginalized communities. One neglected sector of the population is the commercial farmworker community, currently comprising about two million hired farmworkers and their families. The limited information about schooling on commercial farms, particularly the lack of clarity about the relevance and quality of education, prompted Save the Children Fund (SCF) to undertake a participatory research project on 27 farms in Mashonaland Central in late 1998.
