The PG Family Foundation is participating in the NYC Marathon again this year to raise money for Zara's Center!
Zara's Center for AIDS-Impacted Youth is a model respite program for AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Zara's provides nourishment, academic enrichment, medical care, work training, recreation, cultural and artistic development to children in community-based and home-centered initiatives. The majority of Zara's kids have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS.
In early 2013, Zara’s moved to a new, permanent, home in Emganwini Township, and has already become a second home for over 80 children. A facility expansion is currently underway, which will allow the Center to serve more children. The Zara’s NYC Marathon Running Team will raise crucial funds to help expand the Center.
