ABOUT Friendship Bench Global
The Project: Friendship Bench Global
The Big Picture:
Dr Dixon Chibanda created Friendship Bench Global to provide care for people suffering from anxiety and depression. Grandmothers, specially trained in cognitive behavior hold sessions on wooden park benches – easily accessible to the community. Today, 700 grandma health workers have treated over 70,000 patients across Zimbabwe. The vision? More access in more countries – and go digital too. That’s where you can help.
Discover the safe spaces that Friendship Bench creates – and see how you can support them.
