Roots for Zimbabwe is named for the people of Zimbabwe, who resemble so closely the words of Jeremiah. "But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

Zimbabwe has had its challenges in the recent years, once the leading exporter in Southern Africa, it now has deep economic problems and struggles to meet the basic needs of many of it's people. There is a trust and strength within the people together that despite the various types of drought they never fail to bear fruit.

 

 

Our Mission:

To empower families living in extreme poverty through skills training, educational scholarships and business development by working together with local partners

 

How it works:

1. Roots for Zimbabwe seeks partnerships with businesses, individuals/families, churches in the United States who are willing to invest in educational scholarships, sustainable business development, and/or skills training through one time donations or monthly sponsorship. 

 

2. Roots for Zimbabwe contacts our partner organizations on the ground to share about your passion and investment. These organizations each believe in a model of empowerment and understand the local communities.

Our Partners:

Our Neighbours Ministries, Martin Barrow

Fruitful Harvest , Tammy Scorziell 

Drums of Peace , Lewis Ndlovu

Esandleni Sothando, Mercy Barrow

 

3.These local organizations implement your investment and provide updates for us at Roots for Zimbabwe. We then share with you how lives are changing through your investment.

 

We strongly believe that while there are sometimes seasons of direct financial investment needed in order to fund schooling for a child, skills training for a mother, or small business loans to carry out an entrepreneur’s goals, that the long term intention is empowerment towards self-sustainability
