Zimbabwe is a beautiful country with a tragic past. Over 30 years of political mismanagement and corruption has left this country on her knees and the majority of her people living in extreme poverty. Sleeping on the floor at night with no blankets or bedding, these children walk over 8 miles a day to school each way for the privilege of getting an education. This walk is often done without food in their stomach or shoes on their feet. They do this from the age 5 onwards. Children under school age are left in the streets of the village regardless of the weather as parents have to work in the fields of the farm to support their families. Life is hard in the village and without education, there is little hope of changing the path they are on.
Sunshine Spaces has an extraordinary opportunity to make an impact in the lives of these 200 children. Through sponsorships for each child and partnerships from companies both here in the States and in Zimbabwe, we will be traveling to the area to build a community center for the children under school age, paying for each child in the village to have the uniforms needed for school as well as a year of education. This is life changing for these children - a chance in a million to get a foot up in the world and YOU can be part of it.
Join us for a fun adventure and experience the beauty of Zimbabwe, her wildlife and sunsets, feel the joy of a hard day's work that makes the difference in the lives of so many children and see the smiles on their faces when they know someone cares. Accommodation will be provided in the beautiful Hideaway Lodges and basic meals are included.
Additional funds for activities, shopping and personal needs should be brought with you*
