Today is #InternationalLiteracyDay. As a part of our Direct Aid Program, the Embassy supports Aussie Books for Zim, an Australian charity establishing libraries in rural Zimbabwe. Books are collected from across Australia and shipped to Zimbabwe, where they fill newly built libraries across the country.

With their current DAP grant, Aussie Books for Zim is building two new libraries for kids in Lupane and Buhera, benefiting more than 1100 young readers.

We're proud to invest in the next generation of Zimbabweans, supporting Aussie Books for Zim to improve literacy in rural areas.

Incredible day for Aussie tennis - congrats to Ash Barty and Dylan Alcott on their Wimbledon victories today.

A proud indigenous woman, Ash is the first Aussie woman to win at Wimbledon since her mentor Evonne Goolagong Crawley won in 1980. What a way to end #NAIDOC2021 ❤️💛🖤

For Dylan, this is his 14th Grand Slam singles title, and his third straight for the year - a truly phenomenal effort.

Both Dylan and Ash do Australia proud! 🇦🇺🏆

Australia Post launches new parcels marking traditional place names

#NAIDOCWeek is when all of 🇦🇺 comes together to celebrate the rich culture of Australia’s First Nations people. The 2021 theme, “Heal Country”, calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander culture. ❤️💛🖤

While #Covid has meant our celebrations have looked a little bit different this year, read below to learn how Australia Post is encouraging all Aussies to learn and use the traditional place names ⬇️❤️💛🖤

Whether you live on Wurundjeri country or Noongar land, there's now a spot for traditional place names in new packaging from Australia Post.

To mark #MenstrualHygieneDay we visited Zvidozvevanhu Secondary School in Mutoko to meet its 66 incredible students. With help from Days for Girls International, every girl received reusable menstrual kits (including pads, underwear, soap and menstrual cups) while all students were given school supplies and a solar lamp to help with their studies.

Despite school being closed for six months last year due to #Covid19, we were blown away by the eagerness and enthusiasm of the students to learn.

With me********on the theme of the day, our partners at Global Health Dorcas engaged with all students - both girls and boys - about this important issue, breaking down the mysteries and stigma that can often surround me********on.

We hope our small intervention has started a big conversation for the students of Zvidozvevanhu and that no girls will miss a day of school because of period poverty.

We spent last Saturday in Mbare talking all things mental health, sexual health and substance abuse, with young women and men from the community.

As with all our interactions with the incredible, articulate youth of Zimbabwe, we left with a deeper understanding of the issues and challenges facing young people today, but also with optimism and hope for the future.

We’re proud to support these initiatives, giving space to young people to deep dive into the big issues.

On #WorldPressFreedomDay, & the 30th anniversary of the #WindhoekDeclaration, Australia remains committed to media freedom & the safety of journalists around the world.

For the public good, it’s so important to ensure freedoms to access and disseminate information - by journalists and the public alike - are protected and promoted, including through implementing new media laws to further advance these freedoms.

We were lucky enough to visit this community in 2019 (and taste their potatoes!)

It’s fantastic to see they’re continuing to prosper as participants in the Australian NGO Cooperation Program, which empowers NGOs in countries across the world to develop local solutions to local problems.

Sweet potato farmers from Chiradzulu in #Malawi recently received a visit from the International Potato Center (CIP), showcasing how they've implemented agriculture training and technology to increase crop production.

Everista showed CIP staff how she is growing a fast-maturing sweet potato variety and selling the roots to increase her household income. With the profits, she has purchased mattresses for her family and iron sheets for her house. Her next goal is to buy a cow so she can begin dairy farming to further diversify her income.

This project is supported by #AustralianAid and United Purpose, helping 3,000 smallholder farmers increase their food security and incomes.

Plans for the roll-out of Australia's #COVID19 Vaccination Program announced by the PM today. Vaccinations will be rolled out domestically to people in Australia. You should consult your local health professional for advice on vaccine options that may be available locally. Information on vaccines approved for use in Australia is available through the Therapeutic Goods Administration. At this time, Australian Government advice for international travellers remains unchanged.

Rosemary Kariuki has been awarded Local Hero for 2021 in the annual Australia Day Honours.

Rosemary Kariuki is the multicultural community liaison officer for the Parramatta Police. She specialises in helping migrants who are facing domestic violence, language barriers and financial distress.

Fleeing Kenya alone in 1999, her early years in Australia were terribly lonely. Her experience helped Rosemary recognise that isolation is a huge issue for many migrant women. Many aren’t used to going out alone, have no transport and speak little or no English. So Rosemary devised ways to help women leave their house and meet women in similar circumstances.

In partnership with the African Women’s Group, she helped start the African Women’s Dinner Dance. Now in its 14th year, more than 400 women attend the annual event. She also started the African Village Market – a program to help migrants and refugees start their own businesses – which ran for four years.

Rosemary’s warmth, courage and kindness inspire all who meet her. Her work was the subject of the documentary ‘Rosemary’s Way’. She is but one example of the incredible contribution the African diaspora make to Australia.

The Australian-based SAVE African Rhino Foundation has worked for many years to support the conservation of rhinos across the region. Much of the foundation’s funding comes from Australian supporters, who are deeply committed to ensuring the survival of these special animals.

The Embassy was proud to fund the renovations of ranger accomodation and kitchens in the Save Valley Conservancy, ensuring that rangers can recharge their batteries in comfort before they head back into the bush to be the last line of defence against poachers.

It was our pleasure to visit the new facilities late last year during the annual rhino tagging and meet the extraordinary individuals who work tirelessly to protect these incredible animals.

This Australia Day we would like to highlight some of the fantastic linkages between Australia and Zimbabwe.

Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research has been working in Matebeleland for a number of years, pioneering climate smart technology to maximise water and fertiliser efficiency. The project uses soil sensors to detect water and fertiliser levels in fields, enabling farmers to maximise the efficiency of these inputs.

Australian experts are working with their Zimbabwean counterparts to create a more climate resilient future, allowing water to be conserved and maximum yields produced - excellent outcomes for the local community.
