The Chozen
Foundation Story

Chozen Foundation is a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation founded in 2021 by Taida Chigogora. Our mission is to serve vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities in Zimbabwe, where natural disasters and socio-economic challenges have left communities devastated and in need of basic necessities. We work tirelessly to overcome obstacles and create a more sustainable living for those we serve.

Our Mission

To deliver sustainable life-long changes in the livelihoods of the beneficiaries in Zimbabwe, enabling them to become self-sufficient and lead socially and economically sustainable lives.

Fill a Backpack for Zimbabwe

Chozen Foundation’s flagship program mobilises community support to gather and collect essential supplies such as clothing, shoes, school stationery, and baby blankets for those in need in Zimbabwe. Together, we bring hope and smiles to the lives of countless individuals by providing them with necessities and reminding them that they are loved and cared for.

Greater Love Initiative

On Valentine’s Day, 2021, Chozen Foundation launched the Greater Love Initiative, donating food hampers, school supplies, sanitary ware, and cleaning detergents to Tanyaradzwa Children’s Home and Simbaredenga Newstart Children’s Home. Our love extends to those who need it the most, making special occasions memorable for children in need.

The Hutano Project
Sustainable Food Security

In partnership with local children’s homes and communities, Chozen Foundation builds, plants, and operates farming projects. By providing training and resources, we empower locals to grow their own food sustainably, ensuring a steady source of nourishment. Currently, the Simbarenga Children’s Home in Waterfalls benefits from this project, caring for over 100 children with nutritious fruits and vegetables.

Open Tribe School
Development Project

Open Tribe Foundation is located in Epworth, the 5 th largest population density in Zimbabwe. The school currently has 131 students (67 female, 64 male) with ages ranging from 4 to 13. As it stands the school has 154 learning books with an average of 22 books per grade. Additionally, they currently only have two copies per grade of each subject in the curriculum. In terms of school equipment, the school currently has a total of 8 desks and 8 chairs.

Our Key Areas of Impact

As a non-profit working in assisting the disadvantaged and vulnerable communities in Zimbabwe, our mission is to help these communities with resources and guidance they require to lead independent, self-sufficient and sustainable lives.

Basic Needs Provision

We understand that meeting basic needs is the first step towards empowerment. Chozen Foundation works tirelessly to ensure vulnerable individuals have access to clean water, nutritious food, shelter, and clothing. We distribute essentials through relief initiatives and collaborate with local partners to address immediate needs.

Education for All

Education is a powerful tool for breaking the cycle of poverty. We strive to improve educational opportunities for children and adults alike. Our initiatives include building and renovating schools, providing scholarships, distributing learning materials, and conducting educational workshops to enhance skills and knowledge.

Women's Empowerment

Recognising the pivotal role women play in society, we have specific programs tailored to empower women. These initiatives include providing training in income-generating activities, offering support for maternal and child health, and advocating for women’s rights.
