SCHOOLS AND CHILDREN
We currently support 63 children attending schools surrounding Harare and Chihota village in Zimbabwe. The children are selected by the headteachers and verified by our co-ordinator who visits the families and helps create profiles of the orphans. The Foundation sponsors children from Key Stage 1 to A Level.
We sponsor children in the following schools:
Warren Park Primary School
Warren Park Primary School is located to the west of the capital Harare. We currently sponsor ten children attending the school.
The buildings are typical of schools in the area; simple, single storey brick buildings with concrete floors. The children meet together outside, rather than in a school hall, whatever the weather.
Rugare Primary School
Rugare Primary School, where Anna Mudeka received her childhood education, is located to the west of Harare. Ten children are currently sponsored at this school. Little had changed since Anna attended the school until the Mudeka Foundation funded the construction of a concrete assembly point in October 2017. Now the children no longer have to gather in the dust or mud for daily assemblies.
Kambuzuma High School
We currently sponsor 17 children at Kambuzuma High School. These are children who we have continued to sponsor upon leaving Primary school education.

Muda Primary and High School
We currently sponsor 14 children at Muda Primary and 12 at Muda High School.
We began sponsoring children at Muda Primary School after an unscheduled visit to the school in 2012. The trustees and supporters were overwhelmed by the amount of aid the school needed and decided to take it on as another project. Two classrooms and a block of toilets at the high school, funded by the Foundation, were completed in 2015. Currently we are fundraising to help to ensure food security for the pupils. The photograph shows pupils with educational materials taken to Zimbabwe in 2014.
Warren Park High School
Currently we sponsor a pupil at Warren Park High School. Our policy of continuing education from primary to high school occasionally results in our sponsoring children in additional high schools. Warren Park is one of these.
