Every contribution supports the women and children within The Zienzele Foundation, fosters self-reliance, and furthers education.



Nothing helps more directly than signing up to sponsor a child-headed household. Sponsoring a child-headed household with a donation of $300 provides one year of school tuition, school uniforms, staple household items, and shipments of clothes and shoes for children in homes without adults capable of supporting them.



A fun way to support Zienzele is through our basket store where you can purchase beautiful baskets made by our women's groups. These women earn money from Zienzele's purchase of their baskets which they can then use to support their family. When you purchase a basket from us, your contribution goes to paying school fees for HIV/AIDS orphans, supporting women's income generating projects, and other valuable support for child-headed households.

Get Involved

We love to have volunteers work with us whether on big projects or just for the afternoon. Please contact us if you are interested in supporting our mission. There are countless ways to get involved with the Zienzele community.

Selling Baskets - Many individuals support Zienzele's mission by selling our baskets at their club, church, or even a party. It is so easy to organize a basket sale in your community and it is a really beneficial way to support Zienzele.

Starting a group - Starting clubs within your school, church, or larger community is a great way to spread awareness and raise money for the women and children Zienzele works with. 

Volunteering - There are many ongoing projects in the US which you could volunteer with like working at basket sales, organizing events, volunteering at the annual Zienzele Village Walk, or simply attend our Zienzele Night.

Above, supporters in Kyoto, Japan hold an annual walk to raise funds for Zienzele.
