Kiwilink is passionate about:
The Khayelihle Childrens Village located on the outskirts of Zimbabwe”s second largest city Bulawayo, currently accommodates 108 children in five houses on a 270 acre property. While most of the children come from an abandoned background, a major contributor to the number of orphans is the HIV/AIDS pandemic where one in five people in Zimbabwe are HIV positive.
While most of the orphans are transported offsite for their education, there is a small preschool for the younger children. The preschool also accommodates children belonging to farm workers. The Khayelihle children at school are regarded as well behaved serving as an example to other children attending the same school. It is exciting to what the children grow and take their place as adults in society. Many are entering positions of leadership and making a positive contribution to the nation of Zimbabwe.
Each orphan has multiple sponsored in a program that spans New Zealand, Australia and the United States. But there is a desire to progress toward self sufficiency and the establishment of a dairy farm is part of that quest. At present, 19 cows are currently being milked producing milk for the orphans with surplus milk being sold to raise money for the orphanage.
