THE STORY:

Zara's Center is an after-school safe haven for AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Zara's provides services to over 125 children in Emganwini Township.

Children come to Zara’s Center for a good meal, help with homework, intervention for health & wellness, and structured activities in a safe place. Through support at Zara's Center, they are empowered to reach their full potential.

Funds raised at the Lab Coat Agents event will be used to provide school fees and daily home-cooked meals to the 125 children at Zara's Center.

100% of donations directly benefit the children at Zara's Center - all donations are tax-deductible.

About Zimbabwe:

Zimbabwe has experienced a sharp decline on all crucial counts in the last decade: access to education, economic stability, employment, health, and overall life expectancy:

  • The country is ranked 98th out of 117 developing countries on the Global Hunger Index, with an estimated 4.1 million people       countrywide facing acute hunger.
  • 16% of adults have HIV/AIDS, placing Zimbabwe in the top five most HIV/AIDS impacted countries in the world. As a result, the country also has one of the world's largest orphan populations.
  • 72% of Zimbabweans live below the national poverty line.
  • Many Zimbabwean children do not consistently attend school, as their guardians cannot afford mandatory public school fees.
