Provide Youth in Zimbabwe with Hope

We did it!

Spiwe and her children

What seemed quite impossible to do has been done!  We aimed high and decided to enter Give for Youth's Matching Challenge in March.  With a great call to action and lots of time spent on social media sites, we were able to raise funds for children like Tabiso, Ropafadzo, Mduduzi and many more.

One family, headed up by a widow named Spiwe, received rabbits which they can raise for meat and manure.  How exciting it is to know that our efforts and your generosity produced such hope and joy in the lives of others!  Spiwe and her children are so excited to see how their rabbits reproduce and as they are sold, become food, blankets, school fees, soap, and rent for them.  They are thrilled to know that people they've never met cared enough for them and that they, after many trainings in how to care for small livestock, were called to receive their animals.  So far, so good!  The rabbits are healthy and with the last bit of rains that came on Zimbabwe, they had plenty of greens to eat.  Babies are being born and their warren is growing!

Thank you so much for your generosity, friends.  Without you, Spiwe and the kids wouldn't have their bunnies and the hope that came with them.
