We're not only keeping 200 Zimbabwean orphans alive, with food, sports, arts, medical programs and individual attention, we're helping them to thrive even as their country crumples. Our pre-school program serves 50 3-7 year old orphans; We tutor our school age orphans and provide vocational, educational and life skills that include welding, sewing, construction skills, and for those who qualify we pay for further A level studies.


Zimkids works with 200 orphans in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, whose lives have unraveled. Their immediate families have been torn asunder by AIDS. The extended families that look after them are overburdened by the growing number of children falling into the care of a decreasing number of adults. Their country has collapsed, so schools are either closed or barely functioning. And local clinics and public hospitals they turn to for help have either ceased to operate or become too expensive.


We feed 200 orphans and offer tutoring, workshops in drama and comedy writing, a chess club and choir, soccer, AIDS awareness training, a library, a vocational training and a clinic. Our garden and poultry project are helping to defray the costs of food assistance.

Long-Term Impact

Our goal is not only to keep the kids alive but to help them grow into productive adults, energized, assertive and ready to take initiative for themselves, their families and their community.
