We raise money to assist with the vulnerable and destitute of Gweru Zimbabwe which includes a street children's programme. All donations are given to the UK charity ALERT who assist with a number of projects in the community including destitute children living on the street. A Drop In Centre run by the Midlands Children Hope Centre provides a simple daily lunch as well as two large houses that each accommodate 7 and 10 boys that cannot be reunited with their families. These homes were built by a Norwegian organisation and Champions For Children launched an appeal called "Maywave" to assist in providing the furnishings. The Swedish Champions known as Vanner Till Gweru Barn ( Friends Of The Children Of Gweru) sponsor a garden on land leased for free by Antelope Park. This garden gives a small but much needed income from produce sales. Our goal is to increase this income so that self sustainment can be achieved. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give a man a fishing rod and you feed him for a lifetime! Champions For Children are about Fishing Rods.
