Voice of Peace Report December 2019
Updated: Apr 16, 2020
In Voice of Peace we continue working hard serving orphans and vulnerable children providing conducive environment for them to learn, development and have fun!
A lot of children are growing in a very difficult environment where they can hardly put food on the table.
Guardians work tirelessly trying to make ends meet; but due to economic hardships, having a ray of hope in their lives is not an easy target to achieve.
We are grateful for the Bible lessons that are given to the children, The reading level of these children has increased each week by reading the Bible and their behavior is gradually changing. the community has reported that more and more are accepting to integrate Christian Values in their lives.
With the economic situation in Zimbabwe continue scrambling we are thankful to God for the food feeding programs that children are getting on Saturdays. Orphans and vulnerable children continue to suffer from malnutrition and a balanced diet being offered to them is of great importance.
Children Clubs are Increasing in numbers, we thank God for the children’s clubs that are growing every day; 2019-2020 has been of great importance to us. Number of orphans continue to rise in Zimbabwe leading to the need to provide Christian education, psycho-social support and therapy to heal children wounded in the daily struggles they face. Loosening emotional burdens elicited by traumatic events they experience and filling the void with the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; giving them hope and reasons to dream despite social illnesses surrounding them is our ultimate goal.
Education is key to success for many in a third world country like Zimbabwe. Opportunities usually fall first to the academics and those who have mastered a certain skill in life. Due to such facts and realities of life we believe in empowering orphans through education and technical skills.
We are grateful with the opportunity orphans are receiving and despites social illnesses challenging Epworth community some children are working extra hard to fulfill their dreams. We continue praying and hoping that great results will be achieved by those who will be writing their final examinations.
