Nazareth Shelter

SVP Twinning North East and Midlands Nazareth Shelter

The Nazareth Shelter in Chinhoyi, northwest of Harare, serves as a residential center for older community members.

These marginalized individuals have no extended family support. The shelter provides them with accommodation, meals, and opportunities for social interaction, both among themselves and with visiting members of the SVP.

The center can house 40 residents, with facilities including dormitories, an ablution block, a kitchen, a dining room, and accommodation for the superintendent. The residents are a diverse group, including Zimbabweans and migrants from Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, and South Africa.

Due to the building's poor condition, twinning funding was allocated to the shelter for necessary repairs.

Twinning in Education

Twinning North East and Midlands Education

The Conference-to-Conference “School Fees to Keep a Child in Education” project thrives with support from a Special Works Conference.

This Conference actively funds school fees for children chosen by the Society in Zimbabwe. This initiative provides invaluable, cost-effective support to local families and ensures children gain access to education they would otherwise miss.
