Unwavering Spirit


“Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.” -Unknown

In times of turmoil…we press on, in times of defeat…we press on, and in times of celebration…we savor the moment and appreciate the path that brought us here. Life in Zimbabwe is not easy and almost unimaginable for those not living in these conditions. One thing that I have learned during my time with ASAP is that regardless of the battle you must stay focused and POSITIVE. In a land where it seems that most things are collapsing, ASAP is fighting to sustain and build on our vision of “A World Without Poverty.” This brings me to our latest announcement:

ASAP Africa Welcomes Our Newest Members:
William Maeka- Field Officer- HANDEI
Jolomia Mbendana - Field Officer- Kufusa Mari
Kudzai Sagwidza- Field Officer- Kufusa MAri
Charles Tumbare- Driver

We are so excited about the growth of our ASAP family and we look forward to future expansions.

i think what ye are doing is truly amazing, and that the conditions over there are outragous and unbelievable!!!!I only wish there was a faster way of getting these people better if not basic living conditions!!Hopefully in the near future it will be a lot better for everyone.. if europe used their power to make a big impact there has to be something that can be done where it will be made safer and fairer over there!!
