The JF Kapnek Trust works to improve family health, reduce child mortality and create educational opportunity for the children of Zimbabwe through the implementation of scalable, sustainable programs. The J.F. Kapnek Trust, in its modern incarnation, has dedicated its efforts to addressing the most urgent threats to the health, well-being and educational development of Zimbabwe’s most valuable resource—its children. The philosophy behind all of these efforts is sustainability. In partnership with Zimbabwe’s Ministries of Health, Education and Social Services, as well as other international and local organizations, the Trust positions itself as a facilitator, training Ministry staff and community members to implement programs, ensuring that the ownership of the programs remain with Zimbabwe’s local communities. If a nurse needs to learn the methods for counseling and administering the most current HIV medication, or a teacher needs training to work with children in a preschool, or a physical therapist needs training to become a care provider for children with disabilities, our staff are there, ready to train and make certain they have the supplies they need to do their job. This approach provides the foundation for long-term, sustainable success with measurable results. With your help, they can continue to focus on the health and minds of future generations and ensure a bright tomorrow for the children of Zimbabwe, today. The Trust has developed and implemented initiatives that continue to prevent over 15,000 cases of HIV/AIDS in newborns every year. It has created pre-school programs now serving over 18,000 children at over 200 preschool sites. And it has brought services to families with disabled children, helping those children reach their potential. With this overwhelming success, the organization is directing its energy toward further expansion and building on these platforms to create a more comprehensive national program to improve maternal-child health and early childhood education. Manifesto Born from a legacy of promise, the J.F. Kapnek Trust invests in the Zimbabwean people who—when given the opportunity—are able to secure the health and education of their children and the future of their nation. By developing capacity to provide widespread access to healthcare and education through our focused effort and collaboration with Zimbabwe’s local communities, we’re providing children a chance to succeed, to thrive, and to make a lasting impact on the world. They do this by creating sustainability. They know the only way to guarantee lasting change is to implement a model that both motivates and supports the people of Zimbabwe to become their own resource for improved health and educational opportunities. By inspiring Zimbabwe’s children to realize their own potential, they provide critical tools for them to become tomorrow’s health care providers, teachers and community leaders. They know that the future of Zimbabwe starts here, and now. A donation to the J.F. Kapnek Trust isn’t simply a donation, but an investment in hope and the belief that they can build a more inclusive Zimbabwe, wherein all children are born with an equal chance to attain greatness in their country, and beyond. By donating time or money to the J.F. Kapnek Trust you are engaging with a tradition of social consciousness and sustainability, and propelling the movement toward a renewable future for Zimbabwe, Africa and the world as a whole.
