"Supporting the work of Zimbabwean communities to keep children in school and out of poverty"
Zimbabwe Educational Trust (ZET) is a Leeds based charity that works to promote children's educational rights in Zimbabwe.
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that every child has the right to free primary education (Article 28).
The Trust is guided by a commitment to the second Millenium Development Goal, which aims to fulfil this right.
We work with local partners in Zimbabwe to raise awareness and provide vulnerable communities with the facilities, funding and support they need to get children into school and out of poverty.
Zimbabwe Educational Trust is a registered charity (327519) and receives voluntary funding from various grant making trusts, commercial organisations and private individuals.
A night to honour our founder, Mr. Vuli Mkandla
On 16th November, ZET and Zim Achievers Awards are hosted a night to honour Vuli Mkandla, our inspirational founder and director.
Vuli has spent his entire life championing education in both the UK and in Zimbabwe. At the age of 79 he is still working tirelessly as the director of ZET to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in Zimbabwe.
The night, hosted by the internationally acclaimed poet Dumi Senda, was fabulously attended and ZET would like to thank all those present for giving so generously. We would especially like to thank Conrad Mwanza of ZAA, who has been so generous in his support of the Trust and was the driving force behind the night.
