Browsing: Zimbabwean teachers

Zimbabwe’s education sector is highly regarded worldwide and as far back as 2011, the country had a 97 per cent literacy rate of people above the age of 15.

The difficult economic times in Zimbabwe have meant that there is little to nothing in terms of opportunities for Zimbabwean professional talent in general with teachers and healthcare workers specifically involved in engagements with the government over better working conditions.

These engagements have often turned acrimonious with devastating and unfortunate consequences. In a very strange turn of events, the government is said to have offered striking medical and healthcare workers access to free Wi-Fi internet as an incentive for them to come back to work.
