Orphan Care Spotlight: Income Generation

incomegenerationLocated in the oldest high density locations in the city of Bulawayo, BIC Nguboyenja has been a light in the community since 1957. The surrounding neighborhoods are characterized by small homes housing many people and families where elderly grandparents are raising their orphaned grandchildren.

A combination of entrepreneurial skills and a commitment to sustainable orphan care has led this church to become one of our first partners launching church-level income generation activities. In 2014, they began the process of establishing a taxi business to generate local revenue to fund orphan care AND  fill a vital transport need in the community.

This is just the newest development in BIC Nguboyenja’s pursuit of assisting orphans and their caregivers. They also provide psycho-social support, payment of school fees, life skills training, and home based care to families. A designated committee is responsible for fundraising and distribution of food aid to HIV-infected and affected orphans in the community.
