This report looks at the situation of the Tshwa San living in western Zimbabwe. Information on this small indigenous minority group has so far been limited. Due to unique social and cultural barriers, the Tshwa face a number of constraints and challenges that need to be dealt with.

Based on an extensive survey, the objective of this report has been to provide data and recommendations for interventions and long-term strategies to the government of Zimbabwe and civil society.
