Family AIDS Caring Trust Zimbabwe (FACT) is a Christian-based organisation instituted in 1987 as Zimbabwe’s first AIDS Service Organisation pioneering the HIV response in Zimbabwe. Since its establishment, FACT Zimbabwe has been a leading National HIV and development organisation implementing various projects directly and through partnerships.
The organisation’s programming focuses on 4 strategic pillars which are
36 years after its establishment, FACT Zimbabwe continues to complement the Government of Zimbabwe’s efforts in responding to HIV and AIDS through direct services to local communities. As a locally based organisation, FACT Zimbabwe continue to contribute immensely to the regional and international responses to HIV and AIDS.
FACT Zimbabwe is a Christian based national organisation
working in and through partnerships to improve health (includingHIV and AIDS) and reduce poverty among marginalised people in Zimbabwe and beyond, with a special focus on gender.
FACT Zimbabwe’s core values serve as a foundation for all we do, who we are, and how we do it. They articulate the shared expectations of each other and those with whom we work.
This vision has been crafted knowing fully well that it is aspirational on the part of FACT.
All the work that the organisation will do during the strategic period should be seen to be contributing towards the broader vision. However, the thinking behind the vision is that it will enable FACT to operate even outside Zimbabwe, which should be the long-term goal of the organisation.
The Safeguarding and Sustainable Livelihoods pillar continues to reach out to Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC), adolescents, youth, and their families in Zimbabwe with programs that seek to mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS by providing a comprehensive and sustainable continuum of services. The pillar is implementing two 5-year-long programs (2022-2027), the Sustaining Prevention, Increasing Access to Care and Empowerment for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (SPACE for OVC) and the DREAMS- Support, Maintain, Advocate, reduce Risk and Transform (SMART) Girls which are follow on programs after the CHILDREN TARIRO (2015-2022) and DREAMS initiative (2016-2022).
Guided by the Zimbabwe National HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan (ZNASP IV 2019 -2023), Pillar 2 seeks to reduce HIV risk among vulnerable groups which include women, men, youth, the disabled, and children also empowering these groupings to claim their right to access a critical continuum of services. The listed units under H & W directly provide services and support in areas where FACT Zimbabwe operates.

FACT Zimbabwe through the Strategic Information and Research (SIR) department has made significant strides in ensuring enhanced service delivery over the years through a comprehensive system that allows project-based tracking, collection, analysis and dissemination of experiences and good practices. The SIR department is responsible for designing and carrying out baseline surveys, operational research, and mid and end-term surveys for the organization and partners.
The Organisational Efficiency and Effectiveness is the service centre of the organisation. The pillar comprises of experts in the field who advise on effective resource mobilisation, utilisation, and monitoring in adherence to high ethical and quality standards. As a service pillar, it provides valuable support for effective interventions in the proposal writing stage, budget formulation,implementation, and management of approved grants. The pillar ensures optimum utilization of the human capital, effective utilization of financial and material resources, total quality management and process improvement. Over the next three years, FACT Zimbabwe will work to maximise organisational efficiency and effectiveness to produce quality results and achieve its strategic ambitions. Whilst effectiveness is about quality control and service delivery, efficiency will focus on whether optimal services are delivered on time and in a cost-effective manner.
