Project Details

Come and experience rural Zimbabwe while working with vulnerable local communities, widows, schools, orphans and vulnerable children.

We are a young Trust working in rural Sanyati and need your help setting up and helping run some of our community projects. We also get involved in building and refurbishing projects.  You do not need any particular skills, just a willingness to get your hands dirty, get involved & be flexible.  Things will and do change!

You will be able to visit some of the people we are working with in their homes and see how the projects are making a real difference in their lives.   Also visit and maybe do some work in local schools, find out from the teachers and students what rural schooling is like in Zimbabwe.

WARNING: We are in a very rural setting, with very basic accommodation and utilities.  We have solar power, running cold water (cold shower is available & can heat up water for you to wash with if you wish).  We eat from the land (no MacBurger King here!!).  Internet is limited, as is phone reception, so if you want all mod cons this is not for you, but if you want a real rural experience then look no further!

Social Impact

Our Community Support Projects are run to help those in the community who are most vulnerable, including those living with disabilities, widows, the elderly and families of our sponsored children. We run projects that aim to help them improve their standard of living but also so that they are able to give back to the community by in turn helping others.  Our projects are run from our two project sites in Sanyati where you will be based.  Some of the work will be at our centres and some will involve going out into the community making a real difference.  Our projects range from vegetable gardens, poultry, goats, etc, we are also patrons on a new youth sports club so some work could be linked with that.  Our work is very varied so what you get involved in will depend on what projects we have running at the time, which is why all we ask is that you are flexible and willing to get involved in anything. 

Some previous projects volunteers have been involved in are - setting up local school poultry project, donating netball equipment to a local ladies netball team, re-decorating a school library, planting seedlings with learners at local schools, building structures to help with our projects, working with a local disability group at their project site, donating school supplies to local school children, having a party & playing games with orphans & vulnerable children, taking part in training local bee-keepers, harvesting vegetables from our community gardens and donating to local widows, the list goes on.
