Public Diplomacy Section

The Public Diplomacy (PD) Section at the U.S. Embassy leads U.S. people-to-people programs that aim to bolster American-Zimbabwean partnerships.  Funded by the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961 and the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, the PD section is mandated to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of Zimbabwe by means of educational and cultural exchange; to strengthen the ties which unite us towards a peaceful and more fruitful life for people throughout the world.  The PD Section provides the people of Zimbabwe with straight forward, authoritative information about the United States and seeks to build lasting human and institutional links between the two countries.  PD also coordinates activities at three American Spaces across Zimbabwe.
