Vulindlela Guardians is a small educational charity in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, that has been helping children to go to school since 2005. We pay school and exam fees, provide regular meals, and support Patricia Tshabalala, the social worker, who runs a community centre where the pupils go to do their homework and use the library. These are children who experience incredible hardship in their lives. We currently pay for 75 children who we have supported through primary school and who are now in senior school in Bulawayo. 4 of the older pupils are now at university, and we pay fees and living expenses for them. We feed 150 children three times a week on ePap, a nourishing porridge.
