Welcome to SGAC Zimbabwe!

SGAC Zimbabwe seeks to promote space science and its impact in the country. Our objective is to empower the young with space ideas and to create an informative and active space network to serve as a forum to share ideas.

Over the past years, Zimbabwe has not been involved in any major space activities, but great improvements have been made in the telecommunication sector. A lot still needs to be done and it is high time the country formulates space policies and embrace space technologies for instance in disaster management, agriculture and climate analysis for sustainable development of the country.

Last year our NPoCs attended major international major space conferences, which was a positive step for building experience and passion for space.

For any requests please do not hesitate to contact the NPoCs.
