A Home for Gogo Olive
Why we need your help
Gogo Olive is a charity based in Mutare, Zimbabwe. We create employment for women through making knitted products. We started over 10 years ago as a small group of 6 women – but we have grown to now support over 60 women and their families.
As we have grown we have moved around to different locations, but we now dream of having our own permanent base. We have found a property that we would love to buy and turn it into our own home for Gogo Olive!
This property would provide us with a workshop, offices, a small shop, a kitchen, a creche, a vegtable garden, storerooms and toilets - this is our dream for our future!
For Gogo Olive, owning our own property feels like so much more than practically having a building for our day to day activities to take place, it will give us a new level of security and belonging – it will be our HOME!
There are lots of words associated with HOME but for us at Gogo Olive it means...
FAMILY - SAFETY - SECURITY - IDENTITY - SUPPORT - BELONGING - LOVE - GROWTH
Buying your first home is a huge step and a big financial commitment. For us it is a massive leap of faith to think we could own our own home, but we believe in this vision and know it will allow us to provide a brighter future for our ladies and their families.
How can you get involved?
If you would like to be a part of making this happen then we would really appreciate any donations that will help us make this dream a reality. Or if you would like to organise your own fundraising event to support this project please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to help you!
We need our first instalment by 1st October 2019.
THANK YOU so much for supporting us and believing in our dream.
