Our mission is to empower impoverished people through sustainability with Education, Health, Food, and Hope. We desire to bring hope to the hearts of remote tribal villages in South Africa and Zimbabwe by promoting education and sustainable projects (i.e. provide a food program, building a STEM & Vocational Lab, gardening, chickens, etc.), to create classroom space where there is none for the overcrowded village schools and to provide school equipment, supplies, and food sources. Skills are taught so the people can earn resources to supply their basic needs and experience the pride of self-empowerment. Helping Hands Touching Hearts brings health education, mosquito nets for malaria protection, and other medical supplies to villages. We wish to promote a community of caring and assisting those less fortunate in our world so they can build a life of pride, thus creating an adventure in “making a difference,” while moving closer to a world that is more safe and connected. This, then makes our planet a place of peace and mutual caring with equal possibility to succeed.
While we know we cannot meet all the needs of our 5 adopted Villages, 70 orphans in South Africa, and our 60 orphans and elderly in Zimbabwe, it is possible to help them get an education, heal common medical issues and to bring joy to their hearts with food and some play. Most of the orphans we work with survive on one meal a day. It makes concentration and focus hard, yet they know they must get their education. Education and entrepreneurial projects such as the chickens, gardens and sewing businesses, are a way to rise above a destiny of poverty. They are self-sufficient people and motivated to better their existence. They rely on their own abilities without a sense of entitlement. The Venda are peaceful and contented people; they believe in God’s providence. The Zimbabweans (tribes are the Shona, Ndebele, Tonga, Ndau, Lozi, and Luvale) are highly intelligent and strive to better their conditions through hard work and creativity. It is our intention to help them create a life that is a little more bearable and create opportunities without detracting from the cohesiveness, purity, and charm of their culture.
we are committed to helping tribes in remote areas of South Africa and Zimbabwe. We will continue our endeavors in education, sustenance, fighting malaria, and offering small business opportunities to help these worthy people prosper.
We care about the people. That’s why we’re passionate about helping the community to succeed, learn new ways of thinking, to learn they can rise above the conditions of the past and achieve in the near future.
We give to the tribes in the villages. From training to food, to clothing and shoes, to education, to medical assistance, we’re there to help with their most pressing needs.
