About the Zahra Foundation
Zahra Foundation is an Irish charity that does work in Vietnam and South Africa. It is our philosophy to partner with not-for-profit organisations in each country that can oversee and monitor the distribution and application of money to carefully chosen projects.
To date Zahra Foundation has:
- Built 7 wells for impoverished communities in Vietnam;
- Helped eradicate head lice amongst 1,200 Vietnamese ethnic minority children;
- Supported (and currently supports) a food programme in South Africa which provides food for 300 children three times a week - often the only properly nutritionally balanced meals they'd receive that week.
- Supported a 'beading programme' where a group of women from a South African township started a small business to help support themselves and their community.
Building an After Care Centre for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children in a township called Freedom Park, near Rustenburg in South Africa will be our challenge for 2007.
