Kuda Vana, which means “Loving Children” in Shona, is committed to improving the situation of children without adequate family care. AIDS and other diseases, economic hardship and extreme poverty have left millions of children in Zimbabwe orphaned, separated or on the brink of family breakdown.
Kuda Vana partners with Social Services to provide a safe and loving environment for orphaned or abandoned children who are in need of temporary or permanent care. It is our priority to reunite children with their families, or to facilitate fostering and adoption when we can through our FAMily (Foster Adopt Mentor) program. Kuda Vana also works to keep vulnerable families intact through our Family Assistance Program, providing meals and assistance to families in dire need.
