Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children

Charity description

Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children logo
Thank you for visiting ZIMBABWE'S FORGOTTEN CHILDREN page. For only £30 per year (or £2.50/month) you can pay for a child to go to school for ONE YEAR in Zimbabwe!
Our charity was founded from the BBC documentary "Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children". Viewers were traumatised by the lives of Esther, Grace and Obert as they watched them try to survive on a daily basis and were overwhelmed by their desperate desire to go to school. We work with Esther, Grace and Obert and through donations have been able to give them a brighter future - please see our website for further details.
We have now helped over one thousand other children like them in Zimbabwe, where children's lives have become a painful struggle for one meal and a few dollars to pay for their school fees.

We are a small charity, but the difference we make, thanks to our supporters, is HUGE for these children and their families.

We work in a school in a very remote rural area where the children have been forgotten and other charities have not been able to reach. 950 children have been given a safe pass to school, clean water, a classroom, books and a childhood - rather than having to pan for gold in dangerous rivers or work in cotton fields. We also work in a township providing a start up for whole families so they can pay for their children's (many are orphans left in their care) school fees and put food on the table - themselves. This has changed their lives more than you can imagine. Please support us on this journey to giving families and children an education and freedom. We desperately need your help to keep all our children in school and give them a childhood without pain and suffering!
