Zimbabwe

The Gift of Education

Zimbabwe can be described as a country of contrasts; a land of outstanding natural beauty and a people of faith, yet a nation in need of support. The infrastructure here hasn’t kept pace with the growing population, leaving children in overcrowded classrooms, attending school in shifts, or not going at all.

 

Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

Continuing our building program at Joshua Dhube School- where 400+ students currently go to learn. Mission Direct began building classrooms here in 2012 and this year will see a further two built, giving 80+ further children access to education. For many, the school is their lifeline, representing a place of safety, love and hope – and there are so many more children desperate to be there. Help us to give the gift of education.

Afternoon: Support a local feeding programme, helping to feed over a hundred children in the community. Play with the kids, have fun and learn joy from them.

Rest and Relaxation

You will visit Imire - a wildlife sanctuary situated a short distance from Harare and a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sable Lodge at Imire is an ideal place to enjoy wildlife, great food and a relaxed atmosphere - whilst also contributing to an important conservation cause.
