My husband and I have a big heart for children. Nothing touches our hearts more than looking into children's eyes and seeing such young, tender lives (still to be nurtured to blossom) dry out from the very roots.The very excitement and innocence of a child to confidently speak out their dream shattered by circumstances. There are many children all over the world who are in such difficult situations and we can be easily overwhelmed by the challenge to discourage us to do what we must. We believe one child at a time is better than nothing at all and our hearts cannot simply remain in pain but we have been driven to act.
We are praying and believing to support as many children as we can in the long run but we have decided to start supporting orphans from our home area in Dema township in Zimbabwe. At the beginning of the year we took on 3 orphans still in their primary school education who had left school because of financial challenges.There are many orphans in this area who cannot attend school and even still are struggling to get food to eat. We would like to help as many children as possible and so we researched and found that they were about 20 other children in the same situation in this area so we decided to expose this problem to the wider community so we can get help from others who have the same goal, to help children develop a tomorrow by getting a decent education.
As the saying goes; give a child a fish, save them for a day but teach a child how to fish, save them for a lifetime. This is our goal! Education is a basic right for every child and goes a long way to empower a child to make their dreams come true and even so benefits our country as a whole.World economies and every facet of life cannot drive themselves, they need great men and women to take charge and investing in children is an investment into the future.
In this journey that we have started, we have discovered that with as a little as $20 (about £15) a child can get an education for a term. This was a shocking discovery as we realised that for about £45 a year we could help at least one child get an education. We then thought; what about uniform? For $30(about £20) we managed to buy a uniform for them.We then thought since they are orphans, what are they going to eat. We realised that they would need about $60(£40) to have a good and healthy diet which would sustain them enough to make it through the year.In the end we realised that for about £100 a year we could change a child's life. In summary we discovered that there was actually a lot that could be done with very little investment.
This year our goal is to get these 20 children educated at the very least so we are seeking to raise $3000 which will cover the costs highlighted below;
School fees - 20 x $60 (£45) = $1200 (£900)
Uniforms- 20 x $30 (£20) = $600 (£400)
Food- 20 x $60 (£45) = $1200 (£900)
Total- $3000 (£2200)
We are appealing to you to partner with us on this great cause to be the wind beneath these children's sails to a better future. We are starting this movement not just as a one time opportunity to bless children in need but we will be establishing more projects for this great cause. To be linked to us and to keep in touch with us about how you can partner with us please follow our page for this project on facebook : Faith, Hope, Love
We have faith in every child's individuality and capabilities believing that they will rise against every giant they will ever come across , filled with all hope for them and to love them through their unique journeys. Please join us to sow these virtues within these children.
