In Sight Ministries
A Different Approach
Zimbabwe is unlike any world you know. Few adults live to see age 50 and in their passing, more than one million children are left orphaned, most by age ten and almost 75% infected with HIV/AIDS.
Left in the care of their extended families, these young children are regarded as burdensome. Before celebrating their 12th birthday, they’re expected to find a job, to fend for themselves. Yet they live in a country where unemployment has reached almost 95%.
It’s a world ravaged by AIDS, poverty and violence, where orphan care ministries are concentrated in larger cities and education is a rare option, leaving Zimbabwe’s rural children with little hope.
At IN SIGHT Ministries, ours is an expansive and evolving vision wrapped in the hope and gospel of Jesus Christ. To provide for Zimbabwe’s orphans, we’re now working to renovate rural huts as shelters, develop basic infrastructure that will support the local villages and recruit native caretakers.
Zimbabwe’s future is not without hope—its promise lies with its children, its orphans. They are our mission. By caring for as many of these forgotten children as we’re able, providing them with sound education and discipleship opportunities, we’re inviting the very Spirit of God into their lives and their nation.
But even when every orphan is housed and cared for, daily necessities will demand continued support. The need for food, supplies, educational fees, caretaker provisions and prayer will remain.
Love and grace, little known to Zimbabwean orphans, will serve as our primary tools for change. One caretaker for every eight children will guarantee deserved attention. Provided school supplies and tuition will ensure a brighter future through education. And by becoming part of the nearby village, we’ll help to raise its children, and support locals with occupational training, AIDS/abstinence education and Evangelical ministry.
