The DFZ recognises the Diaspora is a reservoir of potential leadership for development and aims to foster and promote its utilisation in the national development programme. This will include setting up and promoting a mentorship programme whereby leading Zimbabweans are assigned roles to mentor and assist potential leaders in their various fields.

The DFZ realises that the emerging first generation of Zimbabweans in the Diaspora will need to be harnessed and focused towards the development of their home country. This will be facilitated by mentorship programmes led by persons identified within the Diaspora and at home. This will include facilitating internships for young Zimbabweans in-country and in the Diaspora, utilising the platforms and spaces created by Zimbabweans who have progressed in their career paths abroad.
