What we do

#

Support

HIV/AIDS is Zimbabwe's leading cause of death; 37,000 Zimbabweans died of the disease in 2012*

Our families are severely affected by HIV/AIDS, trauma and death and live in extreme circumstances. We provide very practical, emotional and social support to help them through the desperate situations they face daily.

Educate

School in Zimbabwe is an impossibility for most, due to crippling costs and cultural pressures to send children to work

We provide basic literacy and numeracy on the ground in every community we work in using local women who we train.

We also pay a percentage of children's state school fees and provide uniforms to ensure they can take formal recognised exams as they grow older.

#

Train

Unemployment in Zimbabwe is at an all-time high of over 90%

We train families in sustainable farming methods and maximising the use of any land they have. We mostly focus on food growing but also facilitate small income-generating projects.
