Hungry, wet, cold and stressed is no way to start the day but for thousands of Zimbabwean children living in hardship that is the reality. This can impact their educational growth and lead to a lifelong pattern of underachievement. There is a way to break this cycle; by providing the basic essentials, such as food, clothing, sanitary wear, and basic education.
These children would have a chance to escape poverty. Most of the beneficiaries are children from child-headed families and some stay with grandparents who are too old and poor to provide them with basic needs.
Thousands of children from child-headed families won't wake up or go to bed with an empty stomach. Girls won't use unhealthy materials such as cow dung for their periods as they will have access to sanitary pads.
These children will have a chance at education and excel knowing their basic needs are taken care of.
The funds will go towards purchasing food hampers, sanitary pads, clothes, blankets, and payment of school fees.
