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. Come and help us make education accessible for the children of Mutare. 

 

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 650+ students currently go to learn. Mission Direct began building classrooms here in 2012 and in 2019 completed our 16th classroom. 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. 

Many children cross over the border from Mozambique here, looking for the chance to gain access to education and change their circumstances. Combine that with the growing population and class sizes burst with every intake year. 

And there's more to do! Come and help us continue to provide vital facilities here including a toilet block to ensure that children have access to full-time education in a safe, secure and comfortable environment.

For many children here, the school is their lifeline, representing a place of safety, love and hope – 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. You'll also support community outreach/home care visits - one of the most memorable parts of the trip for many.

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.
