School fees in the rural areas cost £30 per year – in the 9 primary schools and 7 ECD centres we work in that includes a daily meal and highly trained teachers.  If you would like to donate towards keeping rural area children in school then please click here.

Township Kids Sponsorship

In one of Zimbabwe’s largest townships, just outside Harare we offer sponsorship opportunities to a few children who live in extreme poverty.  Township life can be brutal for these children – living squashed up in tin shacks with up to 11 others sharing scraps of food, whilst open sewers and rubbish bring severe health conditions and school is but a distant dream.  In many cases young girls end up pregnant and trapped in the cycle of poverty.

Sponsorship includes school fees, uniforms, books, mahewu porridge, food hampers and access to basic medical treatment.  It costs £25/month for individual sponsorship or £12.50/month for shared sponsorship.  We ask the children to communicate their appreciation and encourage them to write as often as they feel comfortable doing so.  It is vital to note that the protection and welfare of the children is our priority.

Please read Bridget’s story here if you are interested in sponsoring a township child, according to the costs and specifics mentioned above.  Please kindly contact sharon@zimbabweschildren.org or continue to our donate page here.  Thank you!
