Welcome to the Mudeka Foundation, a registered charity based in Norfolk, UK. Started by Zimbabwean born musician and actor, Anna Mudeka, our aim is to provide orphaned and disadvantaged children in Zimbabwe with an opportunity for an education. We achieve this through sponsorship of children identified by their schools to be in need of assistance with school fees. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to attend school, and if you do too, please consider supporting our work by donating, sponsoring a child or getting involved with the Foundation.

"My dream is to distinctly pass my ‘O’ level and proceed with my education. I am looking forward to reaching a very highest educational level so that I can find a decent job to help myself and be a breadwinner for our family. I am doing form two now and I am working very hard at school. May you please help me. Thank you."

COVID-19 update

In summer 2020 the Trustees temporarily paused some of the Foundation’s work in Zimbabwe because schools were closed and the lockdown prevented our Project Manager in Zimbabwe carrying out vital oversight of our projects. Although most schools re-opened in the autumn and we recommenced our sponsorship commitments, most are again closed during the re-instated lockdown for at least the month of January (2021). However, children taking exams are in school and we are continuing their sponsorship.

We have used the lockdown periods to review our procedures and restructure the Foundation to reinforce our resilience in the face of economic uncertainties in the UK and Zimbabwe. A new co-ordinator will start work in Zimbabwe this month to provide support for the enhanced student sponsorship programme (ZIPS).

It’s clear that Zimbabwe’s children will need our help even more as the country, with the rest of the world, rebuilds and adjusts over the next few years.
