Iran Provides 1,000 Educational Scholarships to Zimbabwe

Lithium and iron are as important to Zimbabwe as oil is to Saudi Arabia says Chiwenga

Iran has generously offered to provide 1,000 educational scholarships to citizens of Zimbabwe. The first group of students, who are anticipated to include instructors from industrial colleges and polytechnics, will start their six-month training programmes for trainers before the year ends.

Based on the findings of a skills gap audit, which was started by the Zimbabwean government in 2018 with the goal of addressing identified shortfalls in human resources, scholarships and study areas will be awarded.

This effort comes after Vice President Dr. Constantino Chiwenga of Zimbabwe represented his country at the second Iran-Africa International Economic Conference.

Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Technology Development, Professor Fanuel Tagwira, emphasised that the program’s concentration is on personnel from polytechnics and industrial colleges. He underlined the pragmatic aspect of the partnership, which aims to increase capacity by using a “training of trainers” strategy.

Both parties have agreed on the program’s implementation dates and mechanisms, and talks are currently taking place about particular programmes and areas of focus. A steering group will be set up to supervise the initiative’s development and guarantee that the two nations are working together effectively.

Iran has shown a strong desire to assist Zimbabwe’s economic development plan by lending its scientific and technological know-how. Iran is in a good position to support Zimbabwe’s attempts to add value to its raw materials, especially in industries like mining, and to promote economic growth because of its sophisticated technologies and strong manufacturing sector.

Strategically, Zimbabwe wants its people to be capable of driving the country’s development. Programmes such as this scholarship programme demonstrate the government’s dedication to using partnerships to boost economic growth and skill development.
