ARTUZ

Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ)

The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) is an organisation founded in 2009, working for the improvement of the working conditions of rural teachers as well as the right to education in rural areas of Zimbabwe. ARTUZ has over five thousand members and operates in eight provinces of Zimbabwe.

Despite numerous challenges, Zimbabwe has an active civil society advocating for a broad range of human rights issues, yet increasing numbers of human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists are being targeted due to their legitimate human rights work.
