For years, Zimbabwe has been devastated by political instability, economic crises, drought, high unemployment and the spread of HIV. Our project, lying far away from the political hub of the country, has been particularly hard hit. Our community schools presently have 400-day scholars, most do not have access to food and come to school hungry. Studies show that students are not able to learn when hungry and therefore can't learn and become ambassadors to break the poverty cycle.
Our objectives are simple: to continue to assist the local community in every way we can - particularly with the feeding of primary school children, and providing resources to maximise their education and eventually their employment opportunities. This will help them concentrate and focus on their studies while they are at school and will also provide them with some of the nutrients that they are lacking. With your help we were able to provide 120 meals a day to children in Zimbabwe!
