Who We Are

We are a Christian non-profit organization based in Musana, Zimbabwe, and Twashuka, Zambia, working with orphaned and vulnerable children and youth, where HIV/AIDS, poverty and numbers of orphans are high, and support structures are very low. Our ministry is aimed at providing healthy meals, basic necessities, emotional support, education, and bringing children hope. 




To prepare the most vulnerable for a better tomorrow.


We provide a daily nutritious meal, food packages, and assist in basic medical requirements. 


In Zimbabwe we currently are teaching from K to grade 5 and are constructing school buildings. We plan to add a grade each year up to high school graduation.

In Zambia we have our own elementary school from K to grade 7.


In 2021 we completed our vocational training school which currently provides training in sewing, and carpentry.

Healing & Well-being

Our teen groups, children's church and youth projects are designed to provide counselling and healing as well as wholesome teaching.


Led by Weston and Liz Muronzi, LGTH Zimbabwe is currently serving over 250 children, providing daily meals, education at our new school, tutoring, soccer teams and various children's and youth groups, activities and projects. Let's Give Them Hope Zimbabwe also runs Hope Kingdom Fellowship which has weekly biblical teaching and vibrant music, and it serves the community through home visits and prayer.

Our location in Zambia joined LGTH in 2019. It is led by Henry, Elizabeth and Timothy Chitambala who were already running a school daily and feeding children whenever they could. Now that LGTH is involved we have renovated the school and we are feeding the children daily. We have also built a community centre which is being used for many things, including our second Hope Kingdom Fellowship.

Our head office and our international board of directors is in Canada. They support both Zimbabwe and Zambia by forging relationships and raising funds so we can help as many children and families as possible.

Michael and Carmen have "zoom" meetings every week with Weston, Liz, Henry, Elizabeth and Timothy to keep up to date on what is happening in each location and to prayerfully discern where to allocate funds for the greatest benefit of the children. 

Our leadership team consists of Michael and Carmen van Zanten, Weston and Liz Muronzi, Henry, Elizabeth and Timothy Chitambala. We also have two boards of directors. The international board in Canada supports and holds us accountable for the work and how we use the funds, and the local board in Zimbabwe holds us accountable for the work done on the ground. Both boards advise and give counsel to the staff.
