 African Self-Help Assistance Programme is a Mutare based local NGO registered as a private voluntary organisation with the Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ) (Registration # PVO: 37/05). ASAP started operating in Manicaland Province in 1994 under a technical cooperation agreement with GoZ. With a full time staff compliment of 8 and over 100 community based volunteers in the districts where we work, ASAP has a specific purpose to strengthen communities through gender sensitive capacity development, peace building, conflict management, conflict transformation, social accountability, sustainable livelihoods and human rights and democracy programmes. ASAP has successfully managed to uniquely intertwine our peace building, conflict transformation and human rights and democracy programme with our livelihoods programmes that include economic empowerment, education improvement and health and nutrition initiatives. We work with vulnerable groups including women, youth, children as well as people with disabilities

Better light a candle than curse the darkness! ASAP - Development that works!!

Since 2001, the ASAP Zimbabwe team has been implementing the Savings Groups (SG) project, a micro-finance project (previously known as Village Savings and Lending). During more than a decade of economic decline in Zimbabwe, ASAP helped thousand of families survive and thrive in eastern Zimbabwe through SG, working in partnership with CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Plan International and Concern World Wide, ASAP helped thousand of families survive and thrive in eastern Zimbabwe.

In 2013 ASAP entered into a new partnership with HIVOS, a Dutch development agency. “People Unlimited” is HIVOs’ motto, supporting social change and rural innovations throughout Africa. The partnership with ASAP aimed to improve service delivery and monitoring in the greater Mutare region of Eastern Zimbabwe. 

ASAP expertise and experience in providing SG training continues to help thousands of families generate income in the informal sector each year. First, through a partnership with Plan International, which has been ongoing since 2008, and in 2013, working together with Kindernothhilf, (KNH) - one of the largest Christian Organizations in Europe for children’s aid.

Under the leadership of Country Director Regai Tsunga, ASAP continues to work to empower marginalized communities. His team of dedicated professionals continue to work to alleviate poverty, improve agriculture for food security and education.

According to Regai, "We envision a Zimbabwe without poverty and our mission is to cultivate self-reliance. To this end, we work to assist disadvantaged communities in their efforts to improve their own lives. Although the recent dollarization of the economy has eased transactions, access to foreign exchange precludes many from benefiting from the new availability of goods and this underlines the need for intensified ASAP programming."
