The Canterbury United Community Church actively supports and participates in the outreach efforts of A Light For Zimbabwe.
The mission of A Light for Zimbabwe is to empower children, specifically orphans, by providing sponsorships for school fees from primary through secondary school. In special cases, college scholarships may be obtained for a few based on merit and need. Donations will also be used to establish sustainable projects for rural villages and individuals to promote independence and self reliance. Additionally, through the Village Health Worker program, we strive to meet basic screening and health care needs in remote areas as well as early identification of special needs such as children who are not attending school or who are otherwise at risk as well as caregivers in need of support.
A Light For Zimbabwe is a 501 c (3) tax exempt non-profit organization, registered with the State of New Hampshire. It is dedicated to the betterment of the lives of Southeastern Zimbabwean families, located primarily in Chipinge District in the Province of Manicaland. A Light for Zimbabwe is focused on empowering people, instead of enabling them through education, Orphan Sponsorships and Sustainable Projects.
