The Khayelihle Childrens Village located on the outskirts of Zimbabwe’s second largest city Bulawayo, currently accommodates 48 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.
Each orphan has multiple sponsors 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 being milked producing milk for the orphans with the surplus being sold to raise money for the daily needs of the orphanage.
