Educating Orphans

We pay tuition for orphans from primary school through secondary and college. We supply students with school supplies and uniforms.

Population(s) Served

Most of our orphaned children live with caregivers: a relative, a neighbor or a community well-wisher. As a way of earning income, the caregivers are willing to start small income generating projects so that they can support their families and the orphans left in their care, and not depend on donations. Munhu provides community grants that are used as seed money for villagers to start income generating projects.illagers have started projects including raising and selling chickens, goats and rabbits; running grocery stores; making wire; sewing school uniforms; cross border trading, or other profitable ventures. The repaid seed money is used to initiate new income generating projects within the communities. Our community grant program provides a viable opportunity for entrepreneurial, creative and hardworking villagers to become self-sufficient and to work their way out of poverty. Additionally, the villagers can support the orphans left in their care.

Population(s) Served

Students supported by Munhu face many challenges, including lack of tuition, school uniforms, clothes, and food. An additional challenge that our students face is lack of school supplies and text books. It doesn’t help to have a student in class if they can’t participatet is because of this need that Munhu started a school supply drive for our students. We have partnered with Johnson Elementary, Walnut Grove Elementary, and Altrusa DFW in Texas in collecting school supplies. Johnson Elementary has been participating in the school supply drive for the last 4 years. Other schools plan to participate starting in 2016. We have collected supplies such as crayons, exercise books, pens, and pencils.

We have also collected books that have been used to start libraries in rural schools. We need help to cover costs for shipping the collected supplies to our schools. Please consider being part of this program by helping us ship these supplies to our students.

Population(s) Served

Most of our students are in rural schools. Most of them lack sufficient classrooms or if they have have they not complete. Munhu Inc supports villagers if completing the buildings. Providing classroom furniture.
