Empowering less-advantaged children with hope and resources to thrive

 

How we Serve

Education Improvement

We ensure a bright future by making sure that all children are enrolled in local schools.

However, our efforts do not end with book knowledge. We go on to teach the children how to create a sustainable environment and equip them with all the necessary knowledge to be good stewards in order to make a difference in their community.

We also use a mentor approach to guiding children through daily life. We believe this method will reinforce a cultivating and encouraging life for the children.


 

Building Projects

We protect children by providing them with a safe environment and a functional facility. We start with a building because caring for orphans starts with a safe, loving home. Although building a self-sustaining facility can be very expensive upfront, the lifetime benefits are priceless.

Donor funding will provide for digging a well for fresh water and assembling water pumps, installing solar panels and a back-up generator, establishing a garden and orchard, building chicken coops and rabbit hutches, and constructing composting toilets or pit latrines.

FundRaising

Raising capital for the International Shine Bright Foundation (ISBF) is imperative if it is to accomplish the goals that have been established.

To begin work, the foundation needs a total of fifty thousand dollars for materials and supplies for construction of the housing facility and equipment for sustainability projects. For information about the ISBF funding progress, please click here.

 

In the small village of Muziti, in the city of Rusape, we have acquired a small parcel of land as the site of a future home for orphaned children.
