Change a child's life through education

Introducing ZIPS (Zimbabwe Individual Pupil Sponsorship)

The ZIPS programme is one of the biggest success stories of the Mudeka Foundation. We seek sponsors who are willing to pay for individual orphans’ school fees for a minimum of 3 years. Currently 43 of our 63 funded children have individual sponsors.

The Foundation carefully selects children to be involved in ZIPS, ensuring that support is given to those who need it most.

The rigorous selection process consists of:

  • The head at the school identifies the children in need and then contacts our project co-ordinator (Jennifer Mudeka) in Zimbabwe
  • Jennifer visits the family or guardians to verify the child’s needs and to provide a profile for submission to the Foundation
  • Jennifer recommends that the Foundation sponsors the child, either from Foundation funds or through ZIPS sponsorship
  • The Foundation creates a child profile for distribution to potential ZIPS sponsors and, whenever possible, sponsors the child in the meantime

If you are interested in sponsoring a child/children, please contact us at You will be given information on children seeking sponsorship and documents explaining what is expected of the sponsor, child, guardian, and school.

The cost of the fees differ dependent on the school attended. Below are details of the 2017 school fees. (This price does not include uniforms, but you can choose to contribute to uniform and book costs).

To minimise administration costs, the Foundation requests that, should you wish to sponsor a child, you set up a standing order to be paid either monthly, or annually. You can download a Standing Order Form here and return it to our treasurer, Zena Rowland, Bakehouse Cottage, Scoulton, Norfolk NR9 4NR
