GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Under this section all activities uphold the following guiding principles:

PROGRAMS

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY

Our Marriage and family programs are aimed at building family cohesion from a faith- based perspective. We believe that marriage and family is a God ordained institution and our desire is to see families and communities embrace this and celebrate the goodness of God through marriage and family. Couples and families, including single parent homes, are prepared and supported from courtship to marriage and parenthood. The roles of fathers and mothers in the family are restored as families embrace God’s pattern for marriage and family relationships.

  • Marriage Preparation.
  • Marriage seminars.
  • Couples’ weekends.
  • Marriage Counselling.
  • Parenting Seminars and Support.

ADOLESCENT AND YOUTH

Our program with children and youth are informed by the fact that a large number of children and young people in the community are either orphans or are coming from single parented homes with, usually, the father being absent, either because of death, separation or general disengagement.

  1. Psychosocial Support.
  2. Education and Vocational Training.
  3. Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).
  4. Health and WASH programs.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Child Sponsorship Program under Children and Youth

The project targets young children in Primary schools in and around Bulawayo who are orphans or are vulnerable children in one way or another. The aim is to keep the children in school and help them get a basic education. We provide school fees and basic scholastic material. We engage with the whole family through regular home visits and parenting seminars with the parents and caregivers so that they can be fully involved and support the learning process. Currently there are 10 sponsored children between the ages of 6 and 10 years. Help us to increase this number to 100.
