Mission: Eden Children's Village exists to serve AIDS orphans by providing spiritual, physical, emotional, medical, and educational support in a Christian family setting.
Results: Eden Children's Village was founded in 1998. Americans visiting Zimbabwe met a group of people in Doma, Zimbabwe who were wanting to start an orphan project, but were unable to fund the project on their own. From that meeting, a partnership was formed to enable Eden Children's Village to come into being. Funds were raised in the USA and in Zimbabwe to care for AIDS orphans, and a comprehensive Christian care program has been developed to benefit local children. Eden is a NGO and registered with the Ministry of Social Welfare, and adheres to government standards. All of this is bathed in prayer seeking the will of the Father. He is blessing this work immensely!

I felt a tug to help the AIDS orphans in sub-Saharan Africa back in the late 1990s. But instead of sending the money to UNICEF or other secular agencies, I looked for a church sponsored mission. Using a dinosaur of a computer and dial-up internet, I found Kevin and Susan Fry within 2 clicks. They had been operating a vocational school during the first year or so while they got the governmental permits to take in children. Since then I have watched the ministry grow to the amazing place that it currently is, where the raise almost all the food needed to feed more that 800 people per day, supply life-saving medication to their HIV children, serve the medical needs of the community, educate the children that they serve through their own academy, all while negotiating a tenuous political situation, fending off wild animals, and dealing with currency issues. This is a FABULOUS non-profit that does what it says it will do and uses your hard-earned dollars wisely.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to partner with Eden as a sponsor/donor. The expanse of the operation is overwhelming to the common observer, (it was when we visited!) but it is so well run! The founders have such a passion for the children and the people of Zimbabwe, but they also have been blessed the leadership skills to put that passion into effective action. They save lives, not just in the sense of immediate rescue, but also by staying with the children they save and seeing them through adulthood. And though they are Americans in Africa, they have NO intention of teaching the kids to be Americans, but instead to value their Zimbabwean heritage as members of the global body of Christ and society.

I am blessed to partner with Eden Ministries. The team the Fry's work with in Zimbabwe are saving at-risk AIDS orphans. They have little overhead so the money I donate goes directly to providing food, housing, medical care, clothing, education, emotional and spiritual needs and all for about $1/day. In an area where death is the norm, the Eden children are thriving! My trip to Eden was one of the highlights of my life. I was impressed how the people of that area have invested in the kids who would otherwise have no chance in life. They get to experience the thrill of seeing children mature and go on the higher education. They also have the privileged of providing a loving environment for end of life care for those who die from AIDS. Thank God for Eden!
