ZMP believes that every child deserves an education.​

ZMP works to see that the kids served by HCOC

will have the opportunity to go to school.

It is our hope that children will acquire the knowledge

& skills they need to break out of the cycle of poverty

and enrich their lives. ​

Mupfuti’s parents were killed in an automobile accident when he was very young. He moved to Murewa for his grandmother to look after him. She was 77 and self-employed, producing barely enough to survive through peasant farming. HCOC began to support Mupfuti by covering his school fees, and providing school uniforms and stationery for his classwork.

 

“Without HCOC,” he says, “life” was like trying to destroy

a mountain with a teaspoon because, as an orphan in a poor family, there is no joy at all. HCOC made me smile again. I strived to work hard from my primary level up to advanced level and did well in these levels of education.

I have now moved to the next level—tertiary education."

 

Mupfupi attends Binder University of Science Education. With fellow students at the university he launched a Rotaract Club to help vulnerable children and the disadvantaged. The club focuses on ways to empower young men and women between 18 and 30 years of age, offering physical, social and financial help to all those in need in their communities.
