ZOF Africa supports underprivileged students and entrepreneurs in Zimbabwe
Educating & equipping a
new generation of entrepreneurs
WHAT WE DO
ZOF Africa’s mission is to support the inclusive and sustainable socio-economic development in Zimbabwe by:
Providing scholarships to underprivileged youths to pursue higher education or vocational training; and
Supporting young entrepreneurs with mentoring and facilitation services to start and grow their businesses
WHO WE ARE
ZOF Africa is a charitable organisation made up entirely of volunteers to ensure that donations are channeled directly towards supporting talented youths in Zimbabwe.
Our US branch is a registered 501(c)3 incorporated in 2009 in New York with the legal name Zimbabwe Orphans Fund and tax ID 27-1232970.
We are currently setting up ZOF Africa (UK) and filing for tax-exemption status under a Charitable Incorporated Organisation structure.
Our vision is to see every Zimbabwean prosper professionally and become a driver of socio-economic growth for Zimbabwe.
We see education & entrepreneurship as two critical pillars for this growth:
Educating the vast number of talented yet underprivileged Zimbabweans will be one of the greatest investments into their future, in turn contributing to an educated and higher-earning workforce
The launch of successful businesses will catalyse employment opportunities in an economy where less than 10% of the workforce is formally employed
