“Project-based” means that VANA serves the children’s needs by providing resources to larger projects aimed at breaking the poverty cycle. These projects are usually connected to a local church or ministry.

 

OUR MISSION & VALUES

"Building a future for the children of Zimbabwe"

VANA exists for the children of Zimbabwe, especially orphaned and vulnerable children. We believe that every child has a God-given right to a future full of hope and possibility.

Our Christian Identity: The love of God the Father and the mission of Jesus Christ is our motivation.

Integrity: We are each accountable for our actions, our honesty and doing the right thing

 

OUR CHRISTIAN IDENTITIY

VANA Ministries is a non-denominational, Christian organisation that serves suffering humanity because of our Biblical Christian worldview.  We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth to reveal the loving heart of Father God – including the Father’s heart towards orphaned and vulnerable children.

"Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute."

Psalm 82:3 (NLT)

We believe that God’s Word (the Bible) tells of the responsibility of every Christ Follower to share the burden of those less fortunate.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."

Matthew 25:35-36 (NIV)
