Self reliance for women and children in Zimbabwe.


The Zienzele Foundation works in some of the poorest villages in Zimbabwe. Through basket-weaving and other projects, our women's groups earn money to help support themselves and care for over 1,000 orphans.

Unfortunately it’s easy to be disappointed due to circumstances which surround us as we grow, but you have always been there. When the people around you let you down and the days just aren’t going my way, it’s reassuring to me to remember that there are people who care and love you, people who aren’t going to settle for you having another bad day . Thank you very much Gogo.
