Capacity building within BVTA is aimed at empowering individuals and also growing the organization. As a social movement, BVTA has conducted trainings in democratic engagement, enhanced citizen participation, participatory policy making and responsible leadership.
BVTA members have limited access to traditional media sources like newspapers and television. BVTA therefore uses social media and its own print newsletter to ensure that its members are kept well informed about economic and social developments in Bulawayo and Zimbabwe
BVTA has established relationships with national and regional organisations including VISET, ESSET and Asiye eTafuleni (AeT).
