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."


We are looking for anyone who has been involved with the Mudeka Foundation’s work to come forward and share their stories!

–       We want to hear from sponsored pupils about your time at school, how your career is developing and what you are up to now.

–       We are looking for sponsors to share their stories and describe your experience sponsoring a child.

–       Anyone else who has been involved with the Foundation over the past decade- volunteers, project beneficiaries, guardians or schools in the UK and Zimbabwe.

Please contact us if you would like more details and to have a chat!

COVID-19 update

Much as in the UK, schooling in Zimbabwe has been disrupted by the pandemic. Schools re-opened in Autumn 2020 but were again closed from January through to March 15th (exam year classes) with other years returning, in stages, from March 22nd 2021.  Exam pupils were able to take their year-end exams and we have continued to pay school fees for our sponsored children as required.

Zimbabwe is still in a slightly eased lockdown and with a curfew, but our new staff in Zimbabwe have shown great ingenuity and commitment over the last week to make contact with school heads, and have started to visit the schools. This has not been easy for them, transport is very disrupted, and they have done a lot of walking. They had to hire a car to get to Muda.

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.

Please consider subscribing to our newsletter to be kept up to date with the Foundation’s work and events.
