The Mudeka Foundation was set up as a UK registered charity by Anna Mudeka in 2011. Her dream of setting up a charity started in 2005, with the aim of supporting a small group of orphans living in the township where she grew up.
Anna manages the charity in liaison with the Trustees, together with the Foundation’s co-ordinators. Our Patron Alex Dunlop and accountant Jeremy Walton, who were both born and raised in Zimbabwe, complete the team. The smooth running of fundraising projects relies on the hard work and enthusiasm of a band of volunteers.
In 2008, Anna set up a Norfolk World Music Festival in Southburgh, near Dereham, Norfolk, to bring World Music to rural Norfolk through her Tambai Community Projects programme. The event attracts performers from across the world music scene, and visitors from Norfolk and beyond. Since 2015 the Mudeka Foundation’s trustees and volunteers have run the bar as well as providing breakfast for the on-site campers. These Foundation activities at the festival raise money for the charity.
