Many people remain poor or are thrown back into poverty because of conflicts, natural disasters, diseases, poor saving mechanism, corruption, or some other shocks which families and communities are just unable to cope with. ZORUDENA creates long lasting solutions to cab poverty and empower people to create a future that is secure by developing policy pathways, identifying the most appropriate sequence of interventions and investments, given our strategies and plans.


Saving is a crucial driver for universal social rights, economic development and quality job creation hence over coming poverty since we live in a region that has sufficient resources, means, and knowledge to solve these problems, yet our leaders struggle to find the political courage to tackle them. The blight of poverty demands a powerful and practical moral response to its causes and the impact of poverty on people's lives. Supporting groups that are suffering from exclusions in the labour market or a typical employment and help them to manage the unsustainable transitions in the economy.

  • Savings and credit schemes are a significant approach in organizing the community. This facilitates the access of financial services to the poor community living in rural and urban centres of which the majority cannot access the loans from financial institutions like banks due to different reasons including high interest rates and lack of collateral. Savings starts from organized groups within the targeted settlements through our mobilization efforts and later form up a network of many saving groups say the youth, women, and village saving groups.


  • By working together, we enhance our collective impact and cost effectiveness, and contribute to a just country/economy without poverty.
  • Donation to support the rural and urban poor marginalized people.
