Zaka is set to have an orphanage as well as a half way house that will cater for the less privileged while at the same time ensure the center is self sustained through various income generating projects.

The initiative, which is being spearheaded by the Nhaka Yavatema Heritage Trust saw a fundraising dinner being held in the capital with calls for Zimbabweans to support the less privileged in the society.

Nhaka Yavatema Heritage Trust founder, Bishop Tichaona Maume said while the country may be facing numerous difficulties, many people forget that those who may be in the rural and in many instances marginalised areas, may be facing greater difficulties and thus also require a helping hand.

Bishop Maume also suggested the need to ensure that as a nation funds are pooled to ensure orphans and other vulnerable groups access education, healthcare, food, shelter as well as other needs.

There have been increased calls that the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare also gets more funding in the national budget as the number of people requiring social services has also increased.

Furthermore, programmes such as the Basic Education Assistance Module (BEAM) also require funding.
