Farm Community Trust of Zimbabwe (FCTZ) is a local Non Governmental Organization (NGO) established in 1996 under the Private Voluntary Organizations Act 3/99 and is registered with the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare. The organization was established to respond to the growing demands for development services in the large-scale commercial farming areas. FCTZ was formed to take over a farm worker welfare programme that had been implemented by Save the Children UK (SC UK) since the early 1980s to improve access to basic facilities such as housing, water, education and health for the commercial large-scale farm workers. The main strategy was to engage the farmer to assist in the provision of such facilities. The fast track land reform program implemented by government since 2000 to date has led to major changes in the form and structure of both the geographical areas of operation as well as the characteristics of the clientele. The FCTZ responded to the new situation by expanding its mandate to include emergency relief and recovery and social protection programs. Furthermore, FCTZ has had to expand its activities to include both farm communities and rural informal settlements.
