Running For Charity

Our representative admitted that although she has the capacity to run 10ks, running this particular route was a challenge, as this route had steep hills of which this neighborhood is known for.

You’re A Jewel, Single Mother’s Conference

People at Heart is a foundation with a heart for underprivileged children and single mothers, widowed and not.


Being an organization of women who are single mothers both widowed and not widowed, as well as married women, we know and understand the selflessness it takes to raise families as both mother and father. We are currently organising a conference for these single mothers, not to get them to buy into anything or any idea, but to spoil them.

 

There are days that just having the kids visit family members for a day is rest, but for these women, that is not enough, we want to go all out: we want to treat them to a night in a hotel, manicure, pedicure, dinner, and food hampers.


Not only this, we will also have time for these women to discuss issues that they face as single mothers in society, and explore ways in which their situations can improve.


During this time we will select 5 women who will receive a package to startup their own business.

 

As we are a charity organization, we rely on the help of sponsors, we know that our efforts would go further with corporate sponsors, and this goal will be well achieved.

Dreams Do Come True!

Over the last 6 years the journey has been overwhelming. It has been filled with ups and downs. I’m grateful to the people that the Lord put around me. He placed different people at each and every stage and process of this journey. He put in this journey encouragers, financiers, pushers, haters, lovers and prayer warriors. 


When opening this school was a mountain that I did not know how to tackle there was always that one person whom God would send to speak to my innermost being. The work was not easy but in this vineyard he put laborers that labored with me. 


This week we will witness the opening of our People at Heart Foundation School Early Childhood Center in Rusape Zimbabwe. This school will carter for orphans and most vulnerable children from the ages of between 3-6.It still feels like a dream. I woke up this morning and pinched myself and I realized that I was awake and it was going down. 


Thank you to each and every individual who has been part of this journey. You have been God send. To the team you guys are amazing and I love you so much. To God I give you all the glory. You were my strength when I was weak. Through deep waters you were there with me and I came out with character and I came out purified like gold.
