The organization focuses on three priorities: the Humanitarian, Governance, and Education to empower people to exercise their right to choose. We are a dynamic network that monitors, promotes, and defends freedom worldwide. ZIA Network targets over 4 million potential members operating in more than 50 countries, the majority in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, the United Kingdom, the US, Canada, and Australia.

The right to freedom of expression, enshrined under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is widely recognized as a vital component of any functioning democracy. In Zimbabwe we have witnessed the murder of journalists, newspapers banned, radio stations closed and free expression advocates jailed, and citizens denied access to the information they need to participate in decisions affecting their lives and communities. Under such conditions, citizens are also denied the security of an environment that allows for the safe exercise of their human rights, and we are committed to helping change these conditions so people can enjoy all their freedoms.

ZIA Network will play a key role in addressing such threats by exposing violations and raising awareness of the dangers faced by individuals in many towns and villages across the country who dare to criticize powerful figures. See our daily briefing and analysis of events in ZimReport.

ZIA Network works to help build the foundations of healthy democracies by protecting the rights of citizens, free expression, and others to hold those in power accountable.

But as the country goes through a complete meltdown, there is one freedom under threat the country – the freedom to Live. We have a program that attempts to respond to humanitarian disasters. Please see our Program
