The Zimbabwe Country Office Strategy 2023-2026 aims to support national efforts to advance the development and participation of adolescents aged 10-19 in matters affecting them.  The strategy provides guidance towards UNICEF Zimbabwe’s contribution to vulnerable adolescents and youth in becoming active
agents of change by equipping them with knowledge, skills and opportunities to become socially, civically and economically resilient.The adolescent programme strategy aims to establish the parameters of UNICEFZimbabwe’s adolescent programmingwork in the next four years, 2023 to 2026. The Strategy is based on the analysis of the situation of children and adolescents in Zimbabwe and UNICEF’s comparative advantage in addressing adolescents needs.

The strategy further ensures that UNICEF’s response is contextualized to the specific needs of adolescents. Implementation of the Strategy will facilitate a coordinated adolescents programme and preventad hoc and reactive responses that are not based on sound analysis. And finally, the strategy provides a framework for fundraising to ensure that funding raised support priority activities and needs.
