THE DIFTK TEAM
DIFTK is comprised of youth who want nothing more than to play their role in shaping the future of Zimbabwe through service to some of the country's most vulnerable individuals. Meet the team and find out why they do it for the kids!
Terry Nesu Kandiado: Co-founder, President.
"Currently doing articles with an accounting firm, I still cannot fathom why it is that I have been so blessed as I have been thus far, for it is definitely through no deed of my own. Consequently, I do it for the kids not because I'm a good person, but because it's the very least I could do to support my less fortunate brothers and sisters who did not choose to be in the challenging circumstances they find themselves entangled in."
Joseph M. Moyo: Co-founder, Public Relations Officer.
"I believe one of the greatest glories of being human is the ability to more than just feel, but show love and compassion for your fellow man. I do it for the kids because it has become a part of my life's work."
Kundai AJ Zvomuya: Co-founder, Secretary.
"Despite the negative portrayal of my beloved Zimbabwe in main-stream media, I remain a proud citizen. Both driven and goal oriented, I am currently a medical student pursuing my conviction to be of service wherever the Lord may place me in life so I may be a blessing to someone. Hence, I do it for the kids because I do my utmost best to seize the opportunities where I may be of service to others."
Matikomborera Nyamadzi: Committee member.
"I do it for the kids because I remember being a child once too, and I too had things I could not do for myself, and at times I too just wanted someone older's attention. So it's as simple as that, if it would pain me as a child, I should be able to do something about it as an adult.
And this is why you, should do it for the kids, because before you got older you were a child too. :)"
Dominic Mazvimavi: Co-founder, Vice-President.
"I've been extremely privileged because I grew up in a free and conducive environment, where I could aspire to become anything imaginable. One of my greatest desires is to give my less fortunate brothers and sisters hope, to believe they can achieve whatever they dream of, and become whoever they yearn to be because we have alleviated some of the problems they face which are preventing them from doing so."
Benjamin Changara: Committee member.
"I'm the guy who loves running around and playing with the kids! I love being a part of DIFTK because it has allowed me to make a difference in a child's life, as well as meeting different people."
Ralph Madimure: Treasurer.
"I do it for the kids because I think it's God's will and if you have the opportunity to make someone's life better why not do so."
Diamond Maseko: Committee member.
I do it for the kids because I believe that we all have a part to play in helping to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
Rutendo Patsika: Volunteer coordinator.
The cause that is dear to my heart is working with the underprivileged children not just in orphanages, but in homes and streets as well e.g. homeless children. I find that our generation obsesses about fickle things and we tend to be very materialistic and judgemental. I believe it is our duty to build each other up in all aspects of life no matter the saying. " OUR GREATEST FEAR IS NOT THAT WE ARE INADEQUATE .OUR GREATEST FEAR IS THAT WE ARE POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE".
So my theme would be "Together we stand strong..divided we fall".
