The New Zealand Apex Council represents the Zimbabwean Diaspora community in the country. Focused on mainly development initiatives relating mainly to education, health, and social welfare, the Diasporan group is open to new ideas and innovative propositions which will advance the national development cause.
Although it is still in the process of widening its base, the group is committed to:
- Engage for sustainable development;
- Build relationships with stakeholders in Zimbabwe and;
- Harnessing information for development.
- Collaborative working
- Progressive and inclusive engagement
The New Zealand Apex Council embraces a key philosophical underpinning of ZDNBI, that of acknowledgment, of the potential power of the collective will of Zimbabweans as compatriots, to creatively find common ground on which actors can stand, as they resolve presenting challenges in the national interest. ZDNBI proactively engages other state and non-state actors/stakeholders as one of the principal representatives of the global Zimbabwean Diaspora. Additionally, ZDNBI engages local actors in Zimbabwe at the highest level across the party divides.
The developmental goals around which the New Zealand Apex Council will coalesce include, ZDNBI’s objectives, expected accomplishments, indicators of achievement (metric measures), main activities, and a projected budget.
To strengthen the capacity of ZDNBI in Zimbabwe circles for the development of relationships with stakeholders and analysis of benchmark statistics to support national monitoring of progress towards the ZDBNI agreed on development goals.
