Building resilience, transforming communities
BRACT, part of the Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund (ZRBF), helps communities prepare and adapt to a changing climate and economic shocks, and stand up for their rights.
The programme's full title is: Building Resilience through improving the Absorptive and Adaptive Capacity for Transformation (BRACT) of at risk communities in Mutoko and Mudzi districts of Zimbabwe.

Who we're supporting
Vulnerable households that are affected by recurring shocks, mostly related to climate change.
We are building the capacity of 15,505 households, so they can absorb and adapt to unexpected shocks. Our aim is to strengthen the communities' ability to transform and adapt.
A minimum of 4,652 households (30%) are female headed.
