Our Motivation and Strategy

Our motivation is the call of God on our lives to do good and care for orphans, widows and the poor. We seek to do this by loving and serving men, women and children of all faiths or no faith, as Jesus did.

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to empower individuals to create better lives for themselves, their families and future generations. Giving aid can temporarily alleviate the symptoms of poverty, but building local capacity treats the causes and leads to lasting life change.

Bopoma Villages strengthens and equips families and communities in rural Zimbabwe to move from extreme poverty to opportunity, self-reliance and hope
