In 2010 a documentary called 'Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children' was screened on both BBC 4 and
BBC 2 in the UK. This heart-breaking film showed the desperate poverty experienced by children in Zimbabwe
and their constant fight to try and get the most basic education.
The True Vision foundation that received donations after the film now supports the three children featured in the film and ensures that they are well looked after. However, there are thousands and thousands of other children in Zimbabwe who continue to struggle.
It was this that inspired ZBF and True Vision to form a partnership working to improve the lives of children in Zimbabwe.
ZBF has been working in Zimbabwe since 2004 and in the past year has paid the school fees for over 50 children across Zimbabwe. This has lead the organisation to design a project providing agricultural inputs and access to education to ten schools in 2011.
The project will seek to pay the school fees of all children that are currently excluded from school (a minimum of 50% in most schools). ZBF will also provide agricultural inputs and training to schools. This will enable them to grow enough food to fee each child every day.
