Our Values and Charity Work
The Maple Partnership supports and works for poverty reduction through education and training. We do this through:
Maple Zimbabwe Education Fund
This private charity was started in 2007 with the aim of educating severely disadvantaged children in rural Zimbabwe. It is funded through donations from benefactors and profits from Maple. Each year the fund pays school fees for up to 36 children at local primary schools. The fund also gives an allowance for books and shoes at Christmas.
We also sponsor children at Mafuba Primary school in rural Masvingo Province. Despite being in dire need of all resources, the headteacher remains dedicated and his children walk from miles away everyday. They are very grateful for the opportunity to go to school. Receiving letters of thanks from the parents of our sponsored children always gives us a wonderful feel-good factor. It encourages us to continue contributing this vital gift and we are striving to increase the number of children all the time. Here is a small sample of heartfelt letters:
