Fungai Foundation Trust is a non-profit making organization which was founded by Isaac Lembani and Fungai Nyandoro, and it opened its doors in 2010 to look after orphans and the less privileged in Zimbabwe. It is located at number 4061 Nharira way Norton.
The foundation focuses on practical help to bring children out of poverty. The primary goals of the foundation are, globally, to enhance healthcare and reduce extreme poverty, and locally, to expand educational opportunities and access to information technology.
Currently we are looking after 70 children from the age of 1 year to 23 years. 46 children are at Primary school level, 18 at Secondary level and 6 at higher and tertiary level, so that they can be in a position to support and sustain their livelihoods at a later stage.
Being a charitable organization that works with communities and families in Zimbabwe, Fungai Foundation Trust has a 24hour residential care Centre which provides holistic residential care services aimed at addressing the physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual needs for traumatized, abandoned, orphaned children and other vulnerable groups. Fungai Foundation Trust operates to transform the lives of orphaned children to help them become healthy, independent, and productive members of the community.
The Foundation nurtures and encourages the children while identifying their unique needs. Whilst the foundation primarily focuses on children, it also seeks to offer support systems and services to other vulnerable groups as the need entails. The foundation provides essential social work services: therapeutic, counselling, reunification of children, facilitation of foster and adoption, developmental. The Foundation aims to produce self-reliant, respectful and successful people who will be active citizens of Zimbabwe and the world at large.
Fungai Foundation’s coordination with its statutory partners makes it stationed well to help in the facilitation of family preservation and reconstruction. We are driven by a Mission to build relationships, that are supportive and empowering to the orphans, less privileged and the vulnerable in our society. Part of the objectives of Fungai Foundation Trust is to alleviate poverty and advance the socio economic conditions of the orphans.
As a charity organization, we depend on the generous support and assistance of our local, regional and international partners. We welcome all kinds of assistance from donations to volunteering.
