Reclaimed Project believes in extending compassion to the body of Christ both at home and abroad


Similar to our ministry in Lesotho, Reclaimed Project works alongside the International Mission Board, equipping Baptist churches to care for the needs of the poor in their communities. Reclaimed Project seeks to target 2 specific challenges:


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:

  • 1.2 million children do not attend school, lowering the likelihood of future employment.
  • Many children have no money for basic necessities like food, let alone money for school uniforms or books.
  • Street children have no family members to live with and no godly influence to guide them.
  • One-third of females in Zimbabwe will experience sexual violence before the age of 18.  Girls who are double-orphaned are twice as likely to suffer sexual violence than children who are non-orphaned.

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.
