Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is here - one day of global generosity, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform our communities and the world. Today you can partner with us to be the difference in our community in and around Victoria Falls. Every donation counts, no matter how small. 100% of your gift will immediately go to work in our vulnerable communities by supporting existing projects.


Together, we can bring life changes to young girls and women simply by providing them with hygienic reusable sanitary wear and sewing skills - read more here.


By assisting us to drill a borehole well at our Youth and Women's Empowerment Centre, you will allow us to enable us to equip hundreds more people with vocational skills, give children their first playground ever and green a rural area with vibrant life. Read more about the development of this inspirational space here.

Southern Africa is about to enter a fourth wave of COVID-19 and, as evidenced by the recent discovery of the new variant Omicron, high numbers of cases are anticipated. In Victoria Falls, with the assistance of you, our incredibly generous donors, and the wonderful support of the local medical community, we have been able to offer free treatment to the most vulnerable in our society. Without this service, there is no treatment available. The COVID-19 Treatment Centre desperately needs to purchase vital medication. Working together as a global community, we can all save lives - read more here on what has been achieved to date.

On behalf of everyone whose lives your generosity transforms, we thank you! 

Gail, Sipho, Jackie and the Jafuta team.

    Hi Gail I have previously sent an email to Jafuta via both Courtney and Anne. We are based in Cape Town and represent an American non-profit who send volunteers and funds to assist us in some of the under-developed townships in this area. Last year we had a corporate group of 80 who built a classroom and a 5 a side, artificial turf, soccer pitch. and in 2019 we had a group of 220 volunteers who built a large playground and refurbished a township Primary School.
    Through a Zimbabwean contact we were asked if we could assist with refurbishment at Sir Roy Welensky P.S. in Dete. We sent our first small group of 5 volunteers to the school in June 2023 and did some painting of classrooms. However I found the supplies, transport and logistics a challenge.
    We feel we could be of more assistance and would be more secure working closer to Victoria Falls. Would your organisation be able to accept groups of our, mainly American, volunteers who may be able to assist in implementation and funding of some of your projects. There are occasional small groups, 3 - 10 persons, but normally once a year we have a large group of anything between 60 to 100
    volunteers who bring substantial funds.
    I will be in Victoria Falls again from 20 September to 2 October 2023 as a group of us are taking part in the Hwange Game Count that previous week. If there is interest from your side I would very much like to meet to discuss prospects.
