Abstract: Linkages for the Economic Advancement for the Disadvantaged (LEAD) is a non-profit making organization (NGO) operating in Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Mashonaland West, Manicaland and Masvingo provinces. LEAD’s purpose of the organization is to build and/or restore the dignity of disadvantaged groups and communities in Zimbabwe through sustainable livelihood interventions and appropriate empowerment initiatives. In conclusion, the implementation of the assets are consistent with the logic and designed to provide short term employment and food during the lean seasons; build assets that reduce the exposure of the most vulnerable groups to various disaster shocks and in the longer term lead to improvements in the natural resource base and create income generating opportunities for project beneficiaries through training and providing access to markets. With the negative effects of climate change being a reality in Binga district, the evaluation findings suggest that the project was largely successful in achieving many of its objectives.
