The Big Goal
•Build a self-contained village for 80 –100 Orphans, whose parents have died from HIV/AIDS.
•Provide accommodation, food, water and medical care as well as education and training to acquire skills for basic jobs. Offer a chance to live an independent life later on.
•Create a natural African community with farming and livestock (goats).
What we have achieved already
•Purchase of arable land (13.000m2)
•2 stone houses have been built
•A nun belonging to a local religious order moved in to supervise the children and overlook the day to day running of the community
•9 Children have moved in to permanently live there
•The financing of our project is 100% charitable and indirect costs (admin, transport etc.) MUST NOT be incurred. The challenge of the founders is to constantly find people and organisations to contribute money and services voluntarily.
•The money raising initiatives (like classical concerts, raffles, baking cakes….) are arranged by a small core group of people in Germany. A German couple living near the site in Zimbabwe closely monitors the spending of the funds.
The next Step
•In order to avoid cholera or other diseases, it is imperative that a pump is installed into a well which has already been built. The costs for the pump will be 500 EURO.
•To keep the 9 children in food, education and medical care it costs Euro 100 per month.
