Bringing hope to children in need in Zimbabwe
The on-site school at VOH Zimbabwe has classes from kindergarten to grade twelve. We also assist children who attend school in their local communities by paying their school fees and providing school supplies. In addition, we offer a youth empowerment program that equips students with practical skills to help them support themselves and their families. We also provide scholarship opportunities for post-secondary education.
Each school day, we provide a high-protein nutritious porridge for the children who attend our school. We also run feeding programs in the communities of Beta Bricks, Kuwadzana, and Star. For many children, the meal they receive from VOH is the only nutritious meal they eat regularly.
VOH Zimbabwe has two full-time nurses and an aide who care for the health needs of our children. Our on-site clinic offers medical services to VOH children and others from the community. All children receive primary healthcare, including growth monitoring, immunization, and regular medical checkups. We also offer health education to the children and their caregivers.
We currently have nine family-style homes. Each home has a housemother who lives with the children full-time. The Department of Social Services identifies children living in impoverished situations with nobody to provide a safe place for them to live and connects them with us.
