Welcome Bana Bengwana Development Trust
Who we are.
Bana Bengwana Development Trust is an initiative by and for the people of Ngwana Area in rural Plumtree- Zimbabwe and beyond. The organisation was born out of the realisation by the people of Ngwana that if there was going to be any meaningful development in Ngwana area, the vision and ideas and practical steps towards that kind of development needed to be articulated in deeds and action by these same people
Established in 1989, by former students of Ngwana Primary School, the trusts runs the following programs:
– Ngwana Health Centre-: ( Building and equipping the local Clinic and, also running health awareness and wellbeing programs)
– Ngwana Dam : (boreholes, wells and water harvesting programs}
Ngwana School and education centre: (further education, scholarships and mentoring programs}
Ngwana Youth , Women and Senior Citizens Welfare ( This program hosts events, talks, games, get- togethers and has provided food and other resources where possible}
Ngwana Arts/Heritage and Festival ku Ngwana; ( A program that archives local history, hosts talks, dance, drumming and singing workshops and hosts the annual Festival ku Ngwana
Ngwana Business and Churches together: ( a platform for local churches, businesses and even leaders to engage and share ideas on issues to do with development. )
