'Tariro' means 'Hope' in Shona, one of the two main languages of Zimbabwe.

We are a small grant making charity based in the UK that raises money to support orphans or young people whose one parent can’t look after them anymore. We fund between 45 and 50 young people who need our help and support in four centres in Zimbabwe through models which suit the individuals; supporting them through school and then with further education or practical projects until they are able to stand on their own two feet, as a parent would.

Tariro gives these children and young people hope when they have had none, it gives them a reason to live, and helps them to thrive.

Help us to help them by making a donation.
