Gracious hands foundation

Gracious Hands Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to graciously offer a hand in uplifting and supporting the social welfare of the most marginalised and vulnerable youths in Zimbabwe. Our main goal is to provide interventions that will assist the youths to become fully capacitated and empowered to conquer the social challenges that have become their stopping points in achieving their goals. We aim to create a stepping stone for these youths so that they become productive citizens and fulfill their social and economic roles within the society. Our programs are designed to sharpen the organisation’s response to the challenges young people face in Zimbabwe, by assisting the youths to acquire basic educational opportunities, reduce high levels of poverty and also access health systems easily. GHF is guided by it’s core values which are integrity, honesty, social responsibility, teamwork, respect, professionalism transparency and accountability.

Founder

Gracious Hands Foundation is a charitable organization founded in 2020 by a virtuous woman,
Linda Muchenje who was driven by the passion to uplift and support the most marginalized and
vulnerable youths of Zimbabwe to reach their full potential in life. Upon realizing how progress
has been uneven, with many young people in Zimbabwe still experiencing interlocked forms of
discrimination, high levels of poverty, limited access to health systems, lack of educational
opportunities and lack of access in attaining decent jobs , Linda was moved. She formed this
Foundation with the intentions of graciously providing interventions that will support and sustain
the development of these youths.
