Mission: Eden Ministries exists to disciple productive citizens of the nation of Zimbabwe and the Kingdom of God who know their heavenly Father well and abundantly live for His glory in their various gifting and capacities.
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! We've grown to include 151 supported children, 125 employees, a total daily reach of 850 people and a missional outreach through free medical care to 15000 individuals each year in rural Zimbabwe.
Target demographics: Children survive and recovery from the tragedy of HIV/Aids and orphanhood, find hope and joy in life through Jesus Christ and to provide quality education, healthcare and nutrition in a family setting centered on a Biblical worldview.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 151 children, 132 employees and 8000 locals free of charge.
Geographic areas served: Zimbabwe, Africa
Programs: Long term residential care
Community based care

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!
