Population(s) Served
Orphans

As we are very small, the connection between the sponsors and children is often very close. All sponsors have direct contact with their children and can be as involved as they wish. Some sponsors write letters, others send small packages, and some even email with their older children. All sponsors receive updates from Vitalis via email and anyone is welcome to accompany us on our annual summer trip to Zimbabwe!

We like to work with each sponsor individually to find a good fit in terms of the child and the amount you can give. As each child differs, the sponsorship cost varies per child. Although a few children have one sponsor, most have two or three sponsors so that donors can give an amount that is feasible. Depending on the needs of the child sponsorships run from $350 a year to a full University scholarship ($3500 per year!).

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to provide opportunities for orphans to pursue their education and be connected with sponsors.

We are an all volunteer staff in the US and have two individuals providing support in Zimbabwe, we have many reporting systems and are in contact with guardians and teachers of all our sponsored children.
