Three decades of corrupt dictatorship have ruined Zimbabwe’s economy and oppressed an entire nation. Orphaned and vulnerable children
bear the harshest impact, although Zimbabweans commonly practice “kinship care.” When parents die or are incapacitated, extended family members assume care for the child. By coming alongside the local church, Hope’s Promise assists without disturbing existing family structures, and remains invisible to the children in order to strengthen the caregiver-child relationship. Therefore, sponsors of children in Zimbabwe do not communicate directly with the kids, but do receive updates on the sponsored child.
Your sponsorship provides education assistance to orphans in Zimbabwe, allowing them to remain in “kinship care” and giving them hope for their future.
