IMANI ORPHANAGE HOME
This centre was established in Kayole Matopeni in 1996. It provides temporary shelter as it is a preparation house for exit. It has a capacity of 100 children of both sexes and of ages 3 to 12 years. A small array of livestock and poultry (cows, goats, chicken, geese, ducks, and rabbits) is kept in Imani “B”. This provides at least part of the daily requirement for dairy products, but also allows the children to get acquainted with animal rearing, as part of the rehabilitation activities.
