LET THEM Trust Welcomes You
Who We Are
LET THEM trust is a child-oriented, educational and cultural organisation in Zimbabwe that provides platforms to inspire young people and develop and showcase their artistic talent. Through the LET THEM festival and creative workshops in schools across the country, we have reached more than 180,000 children nationwide in less than 10 years.
Zimbabwe is a nation with a rich cultural heritage we want to celebrate. However, we recognize that heritage is under constant threat from challenging economic and social circumstances, to say nothing of an increasingly globalized monoculture. What to do?
The solution for Zimbabwean youth is neither prescriptive nor reactionary. The solution is in our name. LET THEM speak their mind without judgement. LET THEM feel heard. LET THEM be inspired by their heritage . LET THEM define what it means to be a Zimbabwean in the twenty-first century. LET THEM be proud of their answer.
LET THEM trust is a modern organisation that knows where it comes from. Where are we going? LET THEM tell us.

WhAT We do
LET THEM FESTIVAL
The Annual School's Arts Festival is a two day event featuring Poetry, Theater, Music, Dance, Visual Arts and Fashion. It is open to schools from around Zimbabwe and Southern Africa and the world.
The festival has gone from strength to strength over the last 7 years and has attracted the attention of potential stakeholders in Botswana, Zambia and South Africa. Botswana has sent participants to the last two events.
LET THEM VillAge
we have embarked on a mission to build an arts-centrered village in a rural area close to the capital city of Harare. The Village will have room and board facilities where schools, churches, youth associations, clubs and corporate companies will book for short or long stays and experience life off-the-grid, whilst learning more about being Zimbabwean with music, dance, theatre and storytelling.
Art business cAreers
Training the youth in Arts Business Management to increase their understanding of the business elements that will affect them in the arts industry.
