empowermefirst Zimbabwe - Celebrate Swissness

We make higher education accessible - against all odds!

“Whoever is unwilling to help himself can be helped by no one.” Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, Swiss educator


empowermefirst Zimbabwe proudly presents our Swiss national day celebration to celebrate Swiss – Zimbabwean collaboration in providing free access to quality education to the most vulnerable school dropouts.

Swiss, Zimbabweans and global citizens come together to celebrate Swissness: Multiculturalism, human rights, equal access to education for all, freedom, excellence in innovation, knowledge and research, tolerance.
