Imani Foundation Trust drives sustainable development

Zimbabwean based newly established charitable trust, Imani Foundation envisions to immensely contribute to sustainable development in the country through fostering children, youth and women’s economic empowerment and entrepreneurship locally, regionally or internationally among other objectives.

Imani Foundation is a Zimbabwean charity organisation that was founded in 2021 and is going against the odds in fighting for a better future for the future generation under the mission of understanding the particular needs in different communities for our beneficiaries in order to develop tailor made solutions to address the problems.

Sustainable development is economic development that is conducted without depletion of natural resources. It is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Imani Foundation Ambassador Dr Faith Nyamukapa says the trust envisions a world where vulnerable children, women, men, youths realize transformation in their way of living and how they perceive life; becoming self-sustainable agents of change and our future leaders.

“As a Christian organisation we aspire to reflect God’s unconditional love in everything we do, being able to do good all the time! Our Faith in God is our inspiration! Imani Foundation was founded on the words: “Let my actions be that of good deeds to transform lives and communities to become sustainable.”

We want to make a positive difference in the world around us as a reflection of God’s unconditional love for all. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world…. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16),” she said.

Ambassador Dr Faith Nyamukapa is a passionate Zimbabwean, Executive Director of KinderCare Zimbabwe who has represented the country in various ways on different platforms locally, regionally and internationally since 2016 to date. She has sacrificed most of her time and financial resources to expand the work she does and reaching out even to the rural communities and attain much impact locally, regionally and internationally.
