Welcome to Zimpeto
Scarred by 30 years of horrific civil warfare, a war for independence from colonial powers, floods, famines, natural disasters and disease, Mozambique still ranks one of the poorest countries in the world. It is home to some of the harshest living conditions on the planet. Mozambique is a harsh beauty that both captivates the heart and devastates the mind.
In recent years the government and international organizations have worked hard to bring about a lasting peace for Mozambique and improve social infrastructure.
The Zimpeto Children's Centre is located in the heart of Mozambique, just outside the capital city of Maputo.
