“Lack of economic opportunities worsened by ongoing drought have led to the illegal hunting and sale of bushmeat.”


Zimbabwe is a country that has been struggling with poverty for many years. Poverty is pervasive there, with at least 60 percent of the country’s 16 million population living below the poverty line. One of the main reasons for this is the difficulty in growing food due to the dry climate. Located in southern Africa, Zimbabwe has a subtropical climate with hot summers, low rainfall, and cold, dry winters. It is a challenge to grow crops there, especially during the dry season. Farmers often struggle to produce enough food to feed their families, let alone sell any surplus for income.

Zimbabwe has experienced severe droughts in recent years. Droughts can devastate crops and lead to food shortages. This causes prices to rise and makes it even more difficult for families to afford basic necessities. While the government and NGOs have implemented various programs in an attempt to address poverty and food insecurity, there is still a long way to go to ensure that all Zimbabweans have access to basic human needs.
