Bringing hope to the despaired
Empowerement and relief to marginalized communities
Adolescent girls and women are at risk of unemployment, gender-based violence and poverty. To assist in mitigating these risks we facilitate women empowerment workshops and clubs which tackle key issues to better equip and empower young girls for the future. We use 4 pillars to guide our workshops 1. Girls rights (menstruation, gender-based violence, SRHR) 2. Self-empowerment 3. Skills development 4. Self- sustenance. Under the skills development pillar we identify those out of school and unemployed to benefit from a recurring economic empowerment program. This is aimed at equipping girls and women with a skill that will enable them to generate income for themselves and empower them to be economically active. For young girls who have experienced trauma we provide psychosocial support in the form of counselling sessions.
Sponsor A Child
Education is a powerful tool and a foundation for the development of young people which the organization supports through supplying school going girls and boys in high density areas with school supplies such as stationary. In addition, we offer tutoring services in basic maths, English and science to school kids who need an extra help. Through ‘Sponsor a child’s education’ you can to give children a chance to basic education by the provision of school fees, uniforms, stationary, tuck and tutoring services.
Empowered Period Campaign
Women and girls continue to endure the stigma that comes with menstruation particularly access to correct information and access to sanitary products. As part of our work together with our partners we are carrying out an “Empowered, Period! Campaign”, which aims to break the silence on menstruation and promote the importance of menstrual hygiene. With This campaign we aim on reaching #1000 girls with sanitary kits containing (reusable pads, underwear & soap) and Menstrual Hygiene Management information that will last them up to 3 years.
Street Tea & blanket
People living on the streets are extremely vulnerable and exposed to the harsh conditions of the street life. To address their hunger during the winter months and throughout the year FF holds a street tea and blanket drive where the homeless are given a warm meal of a cup of tea and bread and ablanket.
The situational rise of unemployment in the country has left a lot of families economically strained, having to decide to spread what little they get a hold of over food, school fees and bills. FF strives to assist in lessening that burden by providing food hampers to several poverty-stricken households. These packages typically contain Mealie Meal, Cooking oil, milk, sugar, salt, rice, juice, teabags, soap and sanitary products. In November 2019 Faith Foundation was selected to be a beneficiary of OK Zimbabwe’s reverse No shave November initiative. The proceeds from the initiative went towards the distribution of grocery packages and stationary packs to 22 families and children living on a peri-rural farm In Harare called Churu farm.
Annually during the festive season Faith Foundation hosts a Christmas party at a chosen orphanage with children aged 0-18 years. The main purpose of the Christmas Party is to create a space where Orphans and Vulnerable children feel loved and important and to share the goodwill of the festive season in a joyous manner. It is a day filled with fun and interactive games, jumping castles and slides, food and presents. Over the years the Christmas party has been held at the following locations;
2014 – Rose of Sharon orphanage
2015 – Runyararo Children’s Home
2016 – Danai Children’s Home
2017 – Matthew Rusike Children’s Home
2018 – Hupenyu Hutsva Childrens Home
