Nonprofit Overview

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 shepherd's Cup Youth homes Herbal clinic Terminally ill School Vocational education Eden Village Farm Mother training Micro-enterprise support

Eden Ministries is an inspiring mission in Doma, Zimbabwe. I have visited Eden twice and both times my experience was life changing. The work God is doing through the missionaries at Eden is amazing. I met a young girl living at Eden on my first trip in 2007. I came home and kept thinking of her...my husband and I decided to become child sponsors. What a blessing that has been and continues to be for us. We traveled back to Eden this past summer and met our child. Oh what a joy that was! She is lovely and has matured and grown into beautiful young lady. Sponsoring a child has been the most incredible experience for us....we have received so many blessings from our child. Sometimes we think we are ones doing the blessing by being a child sponsor but....in reality we are blessed by our child for allowing us to become a part of their life. Please take time to learn about Eden Ministries.... Myra and Jeff Wells

Eden Ministries has essentially become to base support of an entire Zimbabwean community. They are the stronghold bringing together families to Christ. The way that they comprehensively support the people they minister to should be a model for successful Biblically based ministry. They are touching the lives of many, here and abroad.

I volunteered at the school at Eden for two weeks last year, and was so impressed with their loving, dedicated teachers, and sweet joyful students. I have such special memories of the boys and girls sitting at their “offices” (little handmade desks) as their teacher Dudzi handed out papers while saying “This is for a special boy! This is for a sweet girl!” The love of Christ was evident in so many ways at Eden.

I have been greatly impacted by Eden. I've visited twice now, and not only is the whole ministry wonderful, but I have been personally impressed by some of the people who work and serve at Eden (both foreign and Zimbabwean). Not only by those who lead, but by some of the young men who have grown up through Eden Children's Village. I am encouraged by how their lives have been redeemed and they are living with purpose and passion for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ!
Eden is a great place for a group trip, and offers plenty of experience and introduction into life in rural Zimbabwe. There are lots of ways to get involved, serve, and experience. Powerful visit.

ECV is a place close to my heart because long before I knew it existed God placed a desire to spend a summer meeting, enjoying and serving alongside brothers and sisters in Christ who lived in Africa. From the moment I connected with the missionaries and support staff of ECV until the present, I've been amazed at how God inspires such holistic, simple and joy filled life at Eden. ECV isn't about the affluent donating to the downtrodden, but it is about people from across the globe coming together to care, learn, inspire and bring honor and glory to a loving and tender Heavenly Father. After spending a summer as an intern at ECV and many years now as a child sponsor, I am different because of the incredible opportunity to be part of this community.

Great place! God is using the weak there to accomplish extraordinary kingdom tasks. I am a visible, living product of Eden. It has built, shaped, and modeled me into the man i am today. God bless this place abundantly!

I visited Eden and was amazed at the amount of help they are able to provide. It goes well beyond the kids but to the families and surrounding community. They maximize their resources creating a beautiful place to live, work, and, grow up. They take care of medical, spiritual, educational, dietary needs. They mentor, teach and love these people. A dollar has never gone farther than it does in Eden, where family is created. We have supported 3 kids, and have witnessed the long term effect, it's truly wonderful.

I've worked with Kevin & Susan Fry off and on for years now. I've worked with them with their website, and reaching more supporters using the internet and current media technologies. It's been a blessing and honor to spend time and work with them and give them a new-age avenue to reach anyone wolrdwide. They are always in need of more supporters even if all you can do is say prayers for them you will be welcomed with open arms. This is a true missionary and what they do over there in Zimbabwe is just amazing to me. I respectively give this non-profit a 5-star rating and welcome anyone to spend a few minutes and check out what they are doing by following their facebook page or checking out their website at http://edenchildrensvillage.org/

My husband and I have been working with Eden's since it's conception. We have been sponsoring our child for 12 years and with 6 visits under our belts have been blessed and privileged to watch her grow up in a safe, nurturing, Christian home. Plus, each cent of child sponsorship goes directly toward the child - NOTHING is used for anything else. (Separate funds for other needs.)

We are so amazed by everything God has done with and for HIS mission there to help these kids who, at one time, were so desparate. There have been miraculous healings through prayer and the clinic on site (completely free). Kids who didn't know hardly the basics academically are now among the best educated kids in the country.

I know this sounds like an "ad", but we wouldn't and could not have stayed with it for these many years if it wasn't truly God's doing. Our times there are among the most incredible things we have ever experienced. Anyone wanting an opportunity to help others should definitely look into putting their efforts in the rural Zimbabwe area.

We feel totally blessed to be part of this ministry.

My wife and I had the opportunity to meet the founders of Eden a couple of years ago. We were very impressed with what they are doing there and we were asked to come visit, so this past summer we spent six weeks at Eden, my wife working in the herbal clinic and myself doing carpentry work at the orphan village and at the farm. It was fantastic. We were thrilled to meet the little girl that we have been sponsoring for a year.
We have the highest respect for the staff at Eden and the work they are doing. They grow much of their food, employ much of the local village, the clinic is free and has helped so many sick people, the children live in family settings, not institutions, and the children are all being educated with a very good curriculum by dedicated teachers. The children at Eden are healthy, strong and happy, and it is all due to the hard work and dedication of those who are giving their all to make it happen.

Eden is a fantastic ministry! I've been sponsoring a kid for right at a year now and recently was able to visit her. It was such and incredible experience. 

Eden is a safe place where kids who are orphaned and broken can be filled with the love of Jesus and be given an opportunity for a bright future. 

I would recommend that everyone who would like to invest in the life of a child, do so through Eden Children's Village. I've seen what a difference it makes firsthand and I encourage others to send their Kingdom dollars where it will truly change a life for the better. I can not think of anything more important than investing in the life of a child.
