Ratidzo Trust

Come and experience rural Zimbabwe while working with the local community, schools, orphans and vulnerable children.

About the Project

We are a new Trust just getting under-way in Sanyati, we need your help to refurbish some of our buildings and set up some of our community projects. You do not need any particular skills, just a willingness to get your hands dirty, get involved & be flexible. (If you do have any building, property maintenance or DIY skills that would of cause be put to good use).

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 school is like in Zimbabwe and meet some of our sponsored orphans and vulnerable children.

WARNING: We are in a very rural setting, we don’t always have power, no hot running water – cold shower is available (we 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. Your accommodation is very basic. 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 will be run to help those in the community who are most vulnerable including those living with disabilities, the elderly and families of our sponsored children. We will run projects that aim to help them improve their standard of living but also so that they give back to the community by helping others.
