Daniel was born on 16 July 2009 and was brought to Jabulani on the day of his birth. The police who brought him said that Daniel was found in a high density suburb called Mabvuku, a very poor part of town and we believe Daniel's Mother was a very young girl who was either very sick or too poor to take care of him. Two boys on their way to school heard a baby crying and as a result they called their Mum who then brought Daniel to the police who brought him to us.
On arrival he was distressed but we found he was a big boy weighing in around 3.5 kgs and he had and still does have a big appetite. Daniel has huge hands and feet and is always laughing. He loves to play with cars and he is trying to talk right now and is shouting his orders to everyone.
Daniel is a happy boy who has a mind of his own but is easily embarrassed and cries very loudly! He loves to run around and roll on the grass and also wants to ride the girls bicycles very badly! He is, for sure a bundle of joy.
Can you help?
We would ask you to pray and think if you would like to be involved in Daniel’s life. We are seeking to build an education fund which will enable us to send him to a top school here in Harare and give him a chance to excel.
The Government schools have an average class size of 50 children and costs US$120 per term - there are three terms per school year. An A grade school costs US$250 per term and a private school is anything from US$750 to a Christian private school at US$1500 per term.
If you think you would like to get involved with us in sponsoring Daniel for school, please send us an email with "Daniel" in the subject box. You can sponsor any amount on a monthly, per term or annual basis.
Thank you for reading this. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
As you can see from Daniel’s birthday is still a few years away from school age but we are trying to build a fund to see what type of school we can send him to as we want him to have as great an opportunity as we can provide and we don’t know what the fees will be when he actually starts school!
We will put all monies received into his personal fund and it will not be used for any other purpose.
Zimbabwe Orphan Care update (Jan. 25, 2016):
Due to a recent review of our global online presence on social media, and following updated legal direction from local government authorities regarding images of children online, we have taken the decision to remove all pictures of the children in Jabulani. We know you will understand the reasoning behind this move and appreciate your support and continued prayer for our work.
