Orphan and Vulnerable Children Ministry

The aim of our ministry is to love and support vulnerable children and their caregivers by meeting their educational, physical and psychosocial needs. We reach children who have been made vulnerable by the HIV and AIDS pandemic, whose parents are sick, or who are orphans. One of our priorities is to keep children in school, so we assist with school fees, writing materials and uniforms. We also provide food packs and seeds to grow crops to those who live alone. In all we do, we are always making Christ known to these children and their caregivers.

To sustain the work and involve the local church, we also train church volunteers to meet the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of the children in their communities. We assist with funding to launch and maintain income-generating activities. This supports their families and the ministry. Our primary desire is to show the love of God to the children and teach them to live God-fearing, flourshing lives.

Prayers

1

That God would protect Zimbabwean children from abuse, sickness and disease. 

2

That children gather courage and strength from the Bible to resist negative influences and abuse.

3

That God refreshes the many volunteers working alongside the ministry so that there is less volunteer fatigue.
