About Nhaka Foundation

At Nhaka Foundation we believe every child deserves an education, yet for many in Zimbabwe it’s more of a privilege than a right. The barriers are great and the resources are few. With the support of its partners and in collaboration with the Ministries of Education and Health, Nhaka Foundation works to reduce the challenges facing the children, their families and their communities.

We strive to reach the most at-risk children in the rural areas of Zimbabwe providing them with clean and safe classrooms, basic health care information and education and the nutritional sustenance required to stay alert and engage in the process of learning.

We focus on the very youngest of children as we know the first three years of a child’s life lays the foundation for all things which follow and that early experiences have a profound effect on development and learning.

  • I see firsthand the fruits of their labour. I personally know the children they feed. For many it’s the only good meal they will get for the day. Well done to team Nhaka!
