The Zimbabwe Artists Project is a non-profit organization that helps women artists from Weya in Easter Zimbabwe become more economically self-sufficient. Women of Weya are subsistence farmers, mothers, and householders as well as artists. Most women live on their own, providing for families. Some are widowed, others are single heads of households, since throughout Zimbabwe men leave the rural areas to seek work in cities. ZAP helps these women through education opportunities and through the sale of their artwork.
Join the celebration, and support ZAP and these other great organizations!
