Home of Hope
in Harare, Zimbabwe
About Our Partner
Joan Trevelyan and her team, including son Craig, faithfully minister to people living on the streets of Harare. Several years ago, The Outreach Foundation made it possible for Joan to purchase a home to live in and a facility for her street ministry. She now cares for street mothers as well as children and older people who live on the street due to illness, poverty, and unemployment. Joan (also known as “the Tea and Bread Lady”) and her team serve and bear witness to the love of Christ under difficult circumstances. In addition to feeding and training mothers at the Home of Hope, Joan hopes to continue providing breakfast every week to over 200 people. She also provides scholarships and uniforms to over 100 school children and medical aid to many in need. Home of Hope remains a lifesaver to many in the city of Harare, where neither land nor employment are available to street people, widows and single mothers.
Recently Home of Hope graduated 19 women. They were taught dressmaking skills and designed their patterns themselves. At the completion of their training each was given a small amount of money to start their own dressmaking activity, generate income and care for their families thus preventing more children from going on the street, breaking a cycle of poverty.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $30,000 for the Home of Hope ministry to street people.
