Victoria Falls Hotel identifies Rose of Charity Orphanage as part of community responsibility
As part of their community responsibility, The Victoria Falls Hotel has committed to assist The Rose of Charity Orphanage based in Victoria Falls. The main project of assistance will be in various forms which include donation of linen and creation of a worm project and vegetable garden at their new site. The Hotel will then also assist with the general upkeep of the home.
The home currently has 70 orphans with the youngest “Owen” aged 2 years. As an expansion of the Hotel’s Sustainable Tourism Program, the Victoria Falls Hotel team is assisting with the setting up of a worm farm and garden at their new site near Mpisi Village.
In line with the successful project that has been running at the Hotel for the last year, the wings continue to grow and The Rose of Charity was identified as an opportunity to spread recycling and sustainable gardening projects to children to get the concept starting at a tender age.
Experience derived from the Hotel team will be used to create a viable organic garden and enable the orphanage to have a variety of vegetables for their consumption and income generation.
With refurbishments currently underway at the ‘Grand Dame’, bed linen, towels and pillows have been donated to complement other donor’s that have been assisting the Home with bedding.
The Victoria Falls Hotel Peer Educators Club made up of staff members from across all departments will also work together with the home in HIV/AIDS activities, presentations and awareness programs along with pledging to providing manpower for the brick making process for the new home.
