Community Orientation Activity
Agua Sin Fronteras strives to enhance hygiene, offer access to clean water, and give
health promotion programs. Children are safe from harm and healthy through safe drinking
water, toilet facilities, and hygienic practices. Each child has the right to grow up in a hygienic
and secure surroundings. Access to safe drinking water, basic lavatories, and adequate sanitation
help keep young kids alive, but it also offers individuals a healthy living. It is hard to downplay
how important it is to have it. In reality, safe drinking water affects nearly every aspect of life.
Poor hygiene and contaminated water are responsible for almost 20% of workplace fatalities.
My World’s View
Every person on the planet has a worldview. Individuals’ perspectives on the world shape
their perception, shaping their identity. We should realize that we obtain these attitudes from the
community because we are not conceived with such attitudes. Our experiences with numerous
life events usually create our thoughts. These encounters and experiences have either actively or
passively shaped my worldview.
My overall perspective of the world has evolved as I develop over the years
through understanding and experience. I have advanced in new perspectives and points of view
on gender identity and racial heritage. My belief regarding issues such as gender equality is that
we are all equal, and there is no weak gender. My perspective on various races has evolved, and I
believe that all races are equal and should be treated equally. Growing up in a Christian religious
family, I believed that people sexually attracted to the same gender are wrong and must not be
permitted. Many individuals, if not most, seem hopeless or defenceless in our society. This is
because they have never felt entirely secure in their capacity to engage with, understand, or
comprehend the environment. What I desire and want is to have the ability to cause an impact on
the world. Through learning, using my strengths and abilities to help the needy and the society
within my abilities gives me this power. In terms of life, personality, and qualities, I am firmly
convinced that unchecked living is not fit to live. The opposing viewpoint holds that the
purposeless life is unimportant.
Most times, passion has stemmed from the interests I cultivate. I have acquired multiple
interests through role models, such as transforming and assisting the needy. Accordingly,
inventive interests grow through replication of the influencers of creativity that we see
surrounding us. My Mission arose from the awareness that something is within my reach and the
development of confidence that I can obtain the abilities required to prosper in my purpose. Not
unexpectedly, motivation to create must originate from inside. My values emanate from my
beliefs, and they are aspects that I cherish. My family and religion have affected my values about
principles such as equity, honesty, education, diligence, persistence, loyalty, fidelity, and
environmental conservation. Honesty, commitment, and fidelity are values that govern my job,
efforts, and societal service.
Zimbabwe is a landlocked nation in southern Africa that lies in the northeastern of the
Kalahari Desert. It borders South Africa on the southern, Botswana on the southwest, Zambia on
the northern part, and Mozambique just on the northeastern and eastern part. Harare is the
headquarters. Many fresh lava rocks could be located in the northeast, and the peak Inyangani,
the state’s tallest peak (2,592 m), is located in the east. The Victoria Falls, which the Zambezi
River supplies, are very open to visitors. The vicinity of the falls is dominated by Karoo-Basalt,
which exhibits an orthogonal joint structure filled with sedimentary rocks. Because the infill is
less resilient than the basalt, water flowed through the joints, and the falls evolved with time due
to the erosion of multiple cracks. The climate of Zimbabwe ranges from subtropical to tropical,
with degrees varying according to season. The summers in Zimbabwe are typically hot and
humid, with temperatures about 35°C, while the winter is drier, with temperatures about 25°C;
however, temperatures vary depending on altitude. The average temperature in Harare, the
capital city, is 20°C.
The country’s administration now operates as a constitutional republic. The President,
who is voted in by the people, is the nation’s leader and the executive arm of governance in this
administration structure. Zimbabwe is split into eight provinces. Every province is administered
by a governor selected by the President, with the assistance of provincial executives and
ministries. Each of those provinces is split into 63 districts. The Parliament of the country has
legislative and rule-making authority. In addition, the government includes a judicial arm for
court affairs. ZANU–official PF’s ideology remains socialism. The party has a Politburo as well
as a Central Committee. The government’s fundamental goal has been to strengthen Zimbabwe’s
place in international markets and economic growth, using phrases like ‘the Economic Reform
Order’ and ‘Zimbabwe ready for businesses, ‘ signalling a shift from the Mugabe period stalemate
and collapse in 2017. The declaration called out youths as a specific target demographic,
emphasizing their accessibility to decision and housing and their inclusion in all areas of society.
President Mnangagwa has repeated his view of the young as “partners in progress” and asked for
Zimbabwe’s military force now numbers 54,000 people. The humanitarian status has
worsened, with the government increasingly hostile to human rights advocates, protestors,
political activists, and media. These individuals have been previously intimidated, detained,
convicted, and forced to lengthy pretrial imprisonment; one activist was reportedly slain by
followers of the governing party, ZANU-PF. Large numbers of people have been forcibly
displaced. Government hospitals continue to be mismanaged, and inadequate medical
care infrastructure endangers the well-being of women and girls. Several persons are in danger of
losing their citizenship.
Comparing Zimbabwe’s worldview with our own, there is a slight difference that could
be a source of conflict if Agua Sin Fronteras should succeed in its operations within the country.
Firstly, most individuals in the country do not believe in gender equality. Most people in the
country believe that men are superior to women, contrary to the Agua Sin Fronteras worldview
that all people are equal regardless of their gender. Secondly, many Zimbabweans have racial
disregard towards the whites. This would conflict with our world view on racism since AFS
believes in the equality of all races. Lastly, in terms of service delivery, the value such as equity,
honesty and fidelity are not valued more so in public offices. In the workplace, people in my
country are treated as equals, teamwork is valued, and independent views are considered. There
is no age barrier or cultural barrier in the group interactions. In Zimbabwe, people respect each
other’s work, and teamwork is also valued at work, while group interactions may be barred in
terms of age, sex and culture.
The potential conflicts between the two worldviews in Zimbabwe and my country could
be solved in several ways. Firstly, learning about other people’s way of life and culture could
change one worldview and improve their viewpoint. Through this, conflicts evolving from the
difference in worldviews can be solved. Again, through interactions, one’s worldview can
enhance and accommodate the difference between the two worldviews. This can foster
collaboration between the AFS and Zimbabweans and avoid conflicts between the differing
worldviews. Exposure to and understanding each other’s culture helps individuals be
knowledgeable about different perspectives of people and thus respect their worldviews. This
can help in supporting collaborations between ASF and Zimbabweans.
Zimbabwe’s life expectancy has increased to 61.49 years. The country has a maternal
mortality rate of 458 fatalities per 100,000 live births. A logistic strategy is used to evaluate the
information, including details regarding fertility, health workers, and Aids incidences.
Zimbabwe’s infant mortality rate is about 38.4 deaths in 1,000 live births. HIV/AIDS,
tuberculosis, plus malaria are the topmost health issues affecting Zimbabweans. These illnesses
play a substantial role in mother and infant sickness and mortality. Falling economic
circumstances and growing living expenses have weakened a healthcare system once recognized
throughout the area for its well-educated, firm personnel and capacity to deliver modern medical
treatment. USAID funds projects to minimize unnecessary deaths and health burdens,
particularly among mothers and kids below five. Of Zimbabwe’s 15 million inhabitants, 54 per
cent are below the age of 20, and the youths account for one-third of all new HIV cases (1524yrs). Adults’ HIV prevalence is around 13% of the total population. This nation has 90 per cent
maternal ART coverage and an 8 per cent mother-to-child transmission rate, which are still high.
Zimbabwe has an 88.7 per cent literacy rate, placing it in the top 10 African nations
regarding education provision. Individuals typically attend school for an average of seven years.
Zimbabwe established free obligatory elementary and secondary learning as a fundamental right.
Chewa, Chibarwe, English, Kalanga, Koi-san, Nambya, Ndau, Ndebele, Shangani, Shona, Sign
Language, Sotho, Tonga, Tswana, Venda, and Xhosa are Zimbabwe’s official languages.
However, the most frequently spoken languages in the nation are English, Shona, and Ndebele.
Around 70% of the population is Shona-speaking and speaks ChiShona as their primary
language. However, English is Zimbabwe’s official language. Africans account for 98 per cent of
Zimbabwe’s overall population and are mostly linked to the two primary Bantu-speaking
communities, the Shona and the Ndebele. Whites account for 1% of the non-African populace.
Europeans are virtually completely immigrants or descendants of immigrants from the United
Kingdom or South Africa; the few from Southern Africa include a sizable percentage of South
African Dutch (Afrikaner) origin. Small groups of Portuguese, Italians and other Europeans
exist. The additional 1% are Asians and persons of mixed ethnicity. In terms of religion, 86
percent of the inhabitants are Christian, 11 percent have no religious connection, fewer than 2
percent practice old traditions exclusively, and less than 1% are Muslim.
Zimbabwe features a mixed economic system in which individual independence is
restricted; however, the state tightly regulates the economy. Zimbabwe is a Southern African
Development Community (SADC) partner and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern
Africa (COMESA). Zimbabwe’s economical freedom ranking is 33.1, ranking it 173rd in the
2022 Rankings. Zimbabwe is placed 46th out of 47 nations in Sub-Saharan Africa, and its total
performance is lower than the area and global norms. Zimbabwe’s Gross Domestic Product is
valued at 16.77 billion US dollars. The country’s GDP value equals 0.01 percent of the universal
economy. The gross domestic product (GDP) is the overall spending for all finished products and
services generated inside the country during a specific period. Zimbabwe is endowed with
abundant natural minerals, such as diamonds, gold, coal, iron ore, chromium ore, vanadium,
asbestos, nickel, copper, lithium, tin, and platinum group metals. Of the products generated in
Zimbabwe, diamond, gold, and platinum-group metals have been the most commercially critical
natural resources. Zimbabwe’s current currency is the Zimbabwe dollar (ZWL). This country’s
currency is unstable, and inflation rates are high.
The nation became a British colony in the 1880s and gained independence in 1980.
Zimbabwe has never colonized any country. Following independence, a coalition government
was marred by deep mistrust. The conflict was manifested in white colonization and African
nationalism, marked by varying levels of discrimination and brutality. The settler administration
was under growing pressure by the 1960s to enable black dominant control. The subsequent war
led in the 1960s to the Second Chimurenga and the savage bloodshed that defined Rhodesia’s
transformation into Zimbabwe. The Lancaster House Agreement, a peace agreement that
followed the 1980 elections, resulted in sovereignty. Later, in 2017 the Zimbabwe Broadcasting
Corporation was taken over by the military, and President Mugabe was overthrown. The current
President Mnangagwa came into power to end the reign of Mugabe, who had been President
since the country attained its independence.
