Victory Siyanqoba

Victory Siyanqoba Trust was formed in 2008 as a community theatre group specialising in social commentary and protest theatre in pursuit of human rights and freedoms in Zimbabwe. Its mission statement is to create unique artistic artworks and platforms towards positive social transformation in pursuit of human rights and freedoms.

The aims and objectives of the organisations are to foster a culture of respect for human rights and freedom in Zimbabwe, and to encourage the strengthening and protection of human rights at all levels of Zimbabwean Society. This includes, but is not limited to, promoting and advocating for human rights provisions and democratic practice through the use of the performing arts locally, regionally and internationally.

The group has been commissioned by civic organisations in commemorations of many international days, campaigns for peace, elections and other important events that have contributed to the democratisation agenda. Victory Siyanqoba transformed into a Trust in May 2011 and initiated various community projects in efforts against torture, injustices, violence, HIV/AIDS and human rights violations. Partnerships with other civil society groups and donor organisations continue to advance the objectives towards realising Victory Siyanqoba’s vision. The organisation is non-political in designing, hosting and implementing high impact activism and protest theatre for development purposes.
