Collaboration and coordination is vital, for any NGO to survive and succeed. Tree of Life Zimbabwe networks with several CSO’s directly and is also part of some national networks working in the Development arena. We also co-host events with other CSO’s upon request.
Tree of Life is currently affiliated to the following networks in Zimbabwe:
- The Peacebuilding Network of Zimbabwe (PBNZ)
- The Trauma Healers Network of Zimbabwe (THNZ)
We also participate in or co-host national conferences that include healing thematic areas. In 2001 Tree of Life facilitated a regional conference “Working towards healing at Community level”. More recently we have participated in the ongoing National Transitional Working Justice Group (NTWJG) conferences and events. The NTWJG is a platform established by 46 non-state Zimbabwean transitional justice stakeholders to provide the interface between transitional justice stakeholders and the official transitional justice processes in Zimbabwe
Where possible, Tree of Life Zimbabwe attends international conferences with like-minded entities, in order to share about our work and to learn from others.
For several years we have attended the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) conferences. Recently we were represented at the 1st South African National Conference on Violence.
