Voice of Peace Organization-Zimbabwe

Updated: May 18, 2019

Children’s Ministry Progress Report – Marcy 5 2019


It started operating in the year 2000 in Dawnview, Harare running a children’s home with 28 children. Most of these children have finished University some are now working for Voice of Peace whilst others are working in various institutions.

Moreover, some are working outside the country whilst others are still at University and in high school. During our hey days we expanded into Mt Darwin, Hurungwe, Buhera, Nyanga, Mutoko, Mwenezi, Victoria Falls Epworth and Great Harare.

By 2008 we had cared for 6 000 orphans and vulnerable children and the majority through our community based care program. We also had opened 4 orphanages and a shelter for girls rescued from human trafficking and also a clinic and two schools for orphans. We had a feeding program for 2000 children in Epworth.

Due to economic meltdown and the political instability mostly 2007 to 2009 our resources began to dwindle. Most of our donors where threatened by the political violence and they began to pull out.

First to be hit hard were our children’s homes and the shelter for girls. We did cut down on our numbers but eventually closed two of the homes and the shelter for girls. The community based care later got affected and we could not bring food containers into the country. Also, the political violence disbursed our orphans with their care givers.

Our numbers began to decrease at Dawnview Children's Home where we now have 14 children, at Mt Darwin Children's Home we have 28 and at our Daniel Academy school we have 250. We have 300 children on our community based care program within our centers we sending to school.

We also stopped our feeding program and our medical clinic. We also ran children's clubs through churches and communities, which at the moment focuses mainly on the spiritual aspect.

Farming/ Growing Our Own Food

Different types of crops are grown for sustainability. Since maize is the staple food it provides the much needed basic balanced diet. It is through this project the welfare of kids is better supported when it comes to basic needs.

Children are encouraged to participate in cultivating so that they better understand how the world works. Equipping them with the right tools mentally and behavior wise gives them a strong personality. When they encounter negative variable elicited by the true world it will be easier for them to sustain the pressures amicably and with ease. Human empowerment is one of the essential tools we believe in.

Goat Project In Mt. Darwin

We also keep goats in Mt Darwin. Given the devouring economic instability inflicting the country some commodities are beyond reach. Goats provide the much needed meat to help sustain children. Price hikes and inflation leaves the rearing of goats as one of the options to sustain children.

Poultry Project In Mt. Darwin

Moreover, in Mt Darwin we keep chickens. Through these projects children are taught how to run projects. Those that are not mentally gifted benefit a lot.
