AFADU’s mission is to enable the people of Chikombedzi, and therefore in collaboration with the local community, we continue to identify strategies that will provide a hand up rather than a hand out.
Today, our central focus is to support LCV, a home and school to 30 orphans
The Lirhanzo Grinding Mill and Lirhanzo Bakery are two micro finance projects aimed at helping LCV achieve greater self-sustenance.
Along with a strong focus on vocational training and moving LCV children into jobs.
We continue to support the local hospital, Chikombedzi Mission Hospital, and our proud of some of the prevention and early intervention strategies the Hospital has been able to achieve.
Explore AFADU to learn more about our strategies. And of course the kids at LCV.

Community development project approach: a process of working with communities, in an environment that advocates the full and active participation of all community members.
