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 is a awesome selfless Christ Center ministry. Dedicated to serving
aids orphan children in Zimbabwe Africa. I saw first hand how the ministry functions to meet the Spirtual, Physical and Educational needs of the children.
The founders Kevin and Susan Fry and ther teams are faithful genuine Christian's.
They work tirelessly towards the vision that the Lord has given them to give the children a safe place to live, get educated and experience God's Love for themselves.
I have been a monthly child sponsor for several years and had the privilege to visit and work with the ministry teams for a month in 2014. I highly recommend this ministry and I have seen first hand the lives touched and transformed by the power of God's Love through the dedicated servants of Christ at Eden Ministries.

Eden Ministries is a great organization that has God’s will in mind. They have a wonderful child sponsorship program that helps the children of Zimbabwe, and I am so thankful to be a sponsor for one of their ministry’s children. Kevin and Susan Fry are wonderful, kind people that God is using to do a great work in the lives of the people of Zimbabwe. They use the gifts and resources given to them wisely, and I support their ministry wholeheartedly.

One of the neat and surprising things about their child sponsorship program at Eden Ministries is that we can send packages of gifts and supplies to the children we sponsor in Zimbabwe. I have experience with other child sponsorship programs, so I can say this is a unique opportunity to bless the children abundantly. I look forward to supporting Eden Ministries for a long time.

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!
