The charity aims to fulfil its objects through sustainable projects wherever possible. Education is a major area where a real difference can be made. Many children, even at primary level are denied access to education because of the need to pay fees. School facilities are often very poor or inadequate. Classrooms are sometimes a room in a teachers’ house.
The basic diet of Sadza and greens (maize porridge and a type of cabbage) contains very little protein. This, combined with a number of years when the rains have failed, has led to a high level of malnutrition, particularly in children. A need to educate people to grow other crops to provide a better diet has been identified by some of the major charities.
What the Charity is doing right now in Zimbabwe:
· Funding for up to 100 children at a primary school is being made available for this new term.
· Toys and other resources are being sent to a Pre-school unit that is little or nothing by way of resources – they have some old car tyres!
· A new 10 unit toilet block is needed and funds are being raised to provide this essential sanitation.
· Piped clean water to the pre-school unit is on our list as well.

What a difference a pound can make
If you gave
£1 provides fees for one primary school age orphan to go to school for almost 1 term
£2 a month this would keep 6 Primary
£5 a month this would keep 17 Primary
£2 a month this would keep 3 Secondary
£5 a month this would keep 8 Secondary
There is a Pre-School unit which has to share toilets (squat pots) with 900 other primary school children.
There are 100 children in the pre-school unit. Aid2Africa.co.uk is going to provide a 10 unit toilet for them.
Each unit will cost about £200
