Why should you donate to Zimkids?

As such a small, grass-roots charity our overheads are kept to a minimum meaning more of your money goes directly to the families in need. Having our field workers living and working in the townships we support also means they have direct contact with our families and the stories we share are first-hand accounts of lives changed thanks to your donations.

You can check out our latest Impact Report here.

There are many ways you can donate to help save lives in Zimbabwe;

Become an Education or Livelihood sponsor 

Give a one-off financial gift

Become a Regular Giver (We call them Shamwaris which means 'friend' in Shona).

Run an event in our honour such as a bake sale, quiz night or jumble sale.

Set up a fundraising page for us to do something wacky like a sponsored swim, run or bungee!

We have had many flexible and willing volunteers come for short-term trips to help us on the ground in Zimbabwe. These visits are a real blessing to us and an incredible experience for the volunteer.

If you'd like to consider a trip, please get in touch and we'll be happy to discuss possibilities.

Key things to note:

* Upon formal application you will need to pay a £25 administration fee.

* You will need to be totally self-funded. This means paying for your own flights, accommodation, immunisations, visas and food.

* We ask that you commit to raising £1,000 for Zimkids.
