Older students assist with little children's school work

Would you like to sponsor an orphan in Zimbabwe?

Our Society supports the education and general welfare of 400 orphans in Zimbabwe. We have built an Activity Centre for the children in Dzivarasekwa, a suburb of Harare.

As a sponsor you will be helping to build a more just world in which children can go to school and lead a fulfilling life. You will be given insight into the daily life of poor children in Zimbabwe and will see at first hand how much your support helps bring about lasting changes for the better in the children's lives.

Right now we are looking urgently for general sponsors, whose support will benefit all the children. The general sponsorship payment will help cover the cost of the children's meals, health care, extra lessons and extra-curricular activities. It will enable us to continue to give the children a full range of support services that will help them develop their special talents and interests.

For €150 a year you, too, could become a general sponsor. You can deposit the payment in the Society's account: FI76 1745 3000 0616 40, ref. 1119. And please send your name, tel. number and e-mail address to the Society's secretary, Oili Wuolle, at oili.wuolle@gmail.com or Ulvilantie 19 d A 26, 00350 Helsinki, mobile: +358 50 322 6000. At the same time you can let Oili know if you'd like to support the Society in some other way.
