Zimbabwe’s children love education and they are committed to work hard. They achieve amazing results. There is far too many orphans and vulnerable children who still do not have the chance to fulfill their ambitions.
Every day thousands of children in Zimbabwe are denied the most basic education. They go to school but are turned away unable to learn.
You can help by giving financial help or sponsor a child.
For just £2.50 per month or £30.00 per year you can pay for a child’s school fees at primary school for an entire year in Zimbabwe.
“This is a drop in the ocean, but then an ocean is made out of drops!”
With more than this you can make an even greater difference. You can help by giving financial support or you can sponsor a child. Our committee works with the head teachers and School Development Commitee (SDC) and parents to identify children in need of sponsorship and talented pupils who qualify for a scholarship.
