Tree of Life

The Tree of Life Trust Zimbabwe is a non-governmental organisation whose vision is to create a healed and empowered society that puts its energy into processes of peace, recovery and reconciliation. We provide community-based mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) approaches that help people living with trauma to reconnect with self, nature, family and community. Tree of Life (ToL) works in 10 provinces across Zimbabwe, largely through a network of seasoned community-based Facilitators. ToL also collaborates with other Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) by providing capacity building in Trauma Informed Care processes, as well as through the provision of Psychoeducation services.
