As part of our corporate social responsibility, we donated computers, printers and projectors among other information technology hardware to Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) on Wednesday, 10 August 2016. This gesture will go a long way in easing information processing at ZPCS. See below pictures of the donated information technology hardware.

The Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) is one of the largest intra-regional trade fairs south of the Sahara. This annual exhibition offers exposure to both trade and public visitors. The multi-sectoral, multi-national expo provides a convenient trade hub for the region. Its location in Bulawayo, the centre of Southern Africa, is at the crossroads of the regional trade and transportation routes. ZITF is also multi-faceted, a great way to retool, look for investment, sell various products and implement other initiatives. Therefore, with these strategic benefits in mind, we decided to aggressively market ourselves at this year’s 57th edition of ZITF. The fair took place from 26-30 April 2016 and ran under the theme “Innovate, Integrate and Industrialise”. Building on last year’s focus which was on “Seizing Opportunities to Accelerate Growth”, this year’s edition went a step further to address the critical issues of innovation and integration.
ZITF facilitates the projection of a positive international image of our country, as local organisations are portrayed in a positive light. ZITF also allows investors to experience Zimbabwe, and the fair also boosts the Buy Zimbabwe campaign, by facilitating the uptake of local products and services. This year, our thrust was on promoting our insurance policies to the local and international business community; both large corporates and small-to-medium enterprises. Our vision is to innovatively revitalise our organisation and create sustainable value-chains. ZITF proved to be a great opportunity for Zimbabwean companies like us, to do target marketing, given the number and geographical representation of exhibitors from all over the globe. Moreover, ZITF afforded us the chance to engage in match-making with trade visitors. Therefore, we were able to sell our products to the right people. Lastly, we got useful linkages and we were able to hunt for partner organisations in order to fulfill our common goals.
