Msuna Walk 2023 - Victoria Falls Children's Trust

Donation protected
For the 13th year running, a few of us, along with a bunch of volunteers, will walk 126 kilometers from Victoria Falls to Msuna on the top of lake Kariba to raise money for school fees for orphans and vulnerable children in Victoria Falls.

We have three departures this year:

June 15th to June 19th - Zambezi Walk:
4 nights, 5 days | 101 kms | (Full Moon - 18 June).

July 14th to July 19th - Judy's Msuna Walk:
5 nights, 6 days | 126 kms | (Full Moon - 17th July).

August 10th to August 15th - Zambezi Kid's Walk:
5 nights, 6 days | 101 kms | (Full moon - 16th August).

With the impact of COVid 19 on the tourism industry and wider community the Victoria Falls Children's Trust also distributes food hampers to assist the families that support our Trust children and help to cushion them through the difficult times.

Please support our worthy cause by donating. Every little bit counts!

About The Victoria Falls Children’s Trust:

It was 13 years ago that a group of Zimbabweans from the town of Victoria Falls were talking about the problem we have here in Zimbabwe where children are forced to abandon education for the lack of school fees.

Most places in the world now consider education a human right. This is not so here in Zimbabwe. Imagine a world where a child does not have the opportunity to just learn the basics of reading and writing?

It is from this discussion that we formed the Victoria Falls Children’s Trust and embarked on a fund-raising drive to raise money for school fees for orphans and vulnerable children in and around Victoria Falls. We all agreed that the Trust would be a non-profit organization and all trustees would volunteer equal amounts of time toward this very worthy cause with our main objective being school fees but this would be followed by child welfare and a number of other issues that we would deal with as the Trust grows.

We now support 50 children, taking on new ones as some of the children have graduated and left school . We also managed to supply them all with stationary for the school year and continue to provide support to the children and their families in ways of food, medication, clothing and also emotional support when needed.

We have not only had generous donations in the way of sponsors and pledges, but also welcome donations in children’s books, stationery, clothing and blankets.

All of us from the Trust would like to thank all past and future donors from the bottom of our hearts. By funding a child it is the most profound way of helping to change a life for the better. Here we are witnesses to the vicious cycle of poverty. The only way out of this cycle is education and after education the only way is up!

God bless and thank- you!
We so appreciate our donors and walkers for all their continued support.
