Partnership with I Am Zimbabwe Trust
In Mbare, access to early education is a critical component to the promotion of healthy development in orphaned and vulnerable children. Poverty and the persistent challenges that come with food insecurity prevent many children from attending school.
PILAglobal has partnered with locally-based NGO, I AM Zimbabwe Trust, to build Nest Zimbabwe for 3–5-year-old children located at the I AM Mbare School for Orphans and Vulnerable Children. At Nest Zimbabwe, children are served two meals each day, setting them up for an active day of exploration and connection.

Early education is critical for the children in Mumosho, Eastern DR Congo, where many are orphans or are unattended while their parents struggle to provide for their families. Providing a safe place where the youngest children are intellectually and socially engaged, fed, and cared for is an important systemic step in lifting the people of Mumosho out of poverty and healing this war-ravaged country.
PILAglobal, in partnership with Action Kivu and The Dillon Henry Foundation, has created 3 classrooms at the Congo Peace School for children 4- 6 years old. The Nests provide foundational early education and a nutritious daily meal to eighty-four local children who would otherwise not have access to education.
