Who we are

VANA Childcare Ministries is a Christian charity and organisation that supports orphans and vulnerable children in Zimbabwe. It was founded in 2006 by Errol and Donna Spence (Australia) in partnership with Pastor Makoni & Jane Goredema (Zimbabwe).


What we do

We partner with Christian organisations in Zimbabwe, to provide programs that deliver educational opportunities, clean water, nutritious food and health care to the most disadvantaged children. Our programs encourage the children to be nurtured in a village/family style environment.


How you can help

Your financial support is directed to the children, enabling them to receive suitable educational opportunities. You also help us develop micro-businesses that benefit the children and their community. You have the opportunity to change their future.
