Chimanimani is a mountainous district within Manicaland Province, Zimbabwe.
The population is around  135,000 where approximately 45% are less than 15 years old (2012 Census).

The district struggles with economic instability and an unpredictable political climate.  This has resulted in high levels of unemployment and very little opportunity for younger generations.

The Children of Chimanimani

There is widespread poverty throughout Chimanimani with many children without basic needs such as food and water. Approximately  67% are without access to electricity.  Malnutrition and  HIV/AIDS are prevalent due to a  deteriorating public health system.

The education system has been under increasing pressure. The rise of school fees  and the high  cost of buying school uniforms has led to limited accessibility to education for the poor.

PEZA TRUST  was established in May 2014 by Jane High and Frances Fleming to help support orphaned children and unemployed youths in the Chimanimani district.
Peza Trust organises fundraising events and activities in Scotland such as coffee mornings, raffles, pop-up charity shops and sponsored events. We raise money to provide food, supplements, school uniforms, school fees, sports equipment and educational material.
We are proud to say all the proceeds from our fund raising go straight to the children of Chimanimani.
