JICA started its activity in Zimbabwe in 1980 by sending several study missions to Zimbabwe concurrent with the independence of the country, followed by accepting training participants in Japan and dispatching Japanese experts to Zimbabwe in 1981. The first Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers arrived in Zimbabwe in 1989 and JICA Zimbabwe Office was established in 1996.
