The massive HIV/AIDS epidemic has wreaked havoc in Zimbabwe. The AIDS crisis has left a generation of orphans who are primarily raised by grandparents. When their grandparents pass away, the children are left completely alone.
Many orphaned children will live on the streets, resulting in a number of additional problems:
Unemployment in Zimbabwe ranks among the highest in the world. Widows and orphans are the most vulnerable and therefore the most affected by high unemployment. Many widows are caring for multiple orphans in their homes, with no sustainable income.
Reclaimed Project will equip churches to address unemployment by:
• Equipping members of local Baptist churches with training in financial management
• Equipping members (specifically widows) of local Baptist churches with farming skills needed to provide for their own families.
At Reclaimed Project, we believe that there is no greater poverty than life without Christ. In all we do, we seek to share the life-giving hope of the gospel. Our deepest desire is that all the Zimbabweans would come to know Christ as their Savior. We pray that our love for them is an expression and picture of Christ’s love for the Church.
