What We Do

Bringing hope to the despaired

Empowerement and relief to marginalized communities

Empowerment

Empowered Sisters Club

Focuses on improving AGYW’s knowledge on their rights to make informed choices about their lives. Our aim is to empower girls by giving them a chance to learn about issues that affect their lives, enabling them to expand their social networks and life skills. Following issues are discussed; Rights of the girl child & Human rights, Menstrual Health Management, Sexual and Reproductive Health, Violence against women and girls, Education & Employment and Financial Literacy.

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.

Menstrual Health & Hygiene

Women and girls continue to endure the stigma that comes with menstruation particularly access to correct information and access to sanitary products. This program promotes access to menstrual products and information through the distribution of menstrual kits and Menstrual Health seminars to girls and women. Menstrual health is an entry point for improved sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services and rights (SRHR), thus during our menstrual health seminars we discuss SRH rights. To date we have reached over 100 girls and women through this program.

These menstrual kits will last  beneficiaries up to 3 years and contain;

  • 1 x 10l bucket
  • 3 x reusable pads
  • 1 pckt disposable pads
  • 1 x bar of soap
  • 2 x pairs of underwear
  • 1 Storage bag

Food Relief

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.

Grocery Hampers

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. 

Fun

Christmas Parties

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
