Welcome to SGAC Zimbabwe!

Passion, enthusiasm and the quest to reach greater heights is the common goal that all Zimbabweans across the world have in common. We welcome you to the Zimbabwe SGAC webpage which gives the glimpse of the talent that Zimbabwe has in the space industry. It’s a new dawn for many space enthusiasts in Zimbabwe and there is nothing stopping us from reaching the stars, ensuring that Zimbabwe partakes in the global space industry which seeks to improve the lives of all people. Having launched its national space agency in 2018 called the Zimbabwe National Geospatial and Space Agency, Zimbabwe affirms its commitment to allow students and young professionals the opportunity to explore the space industry and use the knowledge to improve agriculture, disease surveillance, infrastructure management, mineral exploration and wildlife conservation.  SGAC Zimbabwe seeks to support all students and young professionals in Zimbabwe. That support has been established through activities carried out by the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) Zimbabwe. Through such initiatives, it is the goal of SGAC Zimbabwe to help spread the awareness of space activities in all regions and ensuring that all students and young professionals access opportunities that are offered by SGAC and its partners. The time to join the space race for Zimbabwe is now and the talent is vast and available.
