Tabgha Foundation is a registered charitable para church organization that seeks to meet the basic needs of the less privileged and vulnerable people in the society and beyond regardless of religious or political affiliation or any form of class. The Foundation was launched on the 23rd of December 2017. The guest of honor was the then member of Parliament for Harare West, Honorable Jessy Fungai Majome. The Founder of this para church organization is Pastor Cleopas Taguma Neuso who is ably supported by his wife Georgina Nyaradzo Neuso who is also a trustee. God gave the Founder the vision to start the Foundation during missiology module when he was studying towards his BA in Theology and Religious Studies at Domboshawa Theological College. When the vision came through and written down, the Founder was in financial dire straits to an extent of not being able to pay his tuition fees not mentioning financial challenges at home. Matthew 6vs33 became the strengthening verse, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” One thing the Founder was quite clear of was that God is faithful and was going to provide for his vision. And for sure Jehovah Jireh has proved that.
On its launch on the 23rd of December 2017, the Foundation started with 11 food hampers. Whilst on that first food hamper distribution, Georgina donated all her groceries to the Foundation that she had saved for the whole year for the family through ladies groceries club. In 2018 the Foundation didn’t reach out because of socio-economic challenges and lack of the resources. The Founder remained resolute and focused on the mission and vision. God being a faithful God, in December 2019, 15 beneficiaries were blessed with food hampers. In May 2020, when Covid-19 pandemic was at its peak and the Founder was greatly worried about how the beneficiaries were going to survive, then God provided 22 food hampers, each food hamper was accompanied by a brand new Holy Bible. What a timely divine intervention. In December 2020, the Foundation managed to share life through sharing food hampers with 26 beneficiaries. The Founder has also joined the ladies groceries club to supplement food hampers for the Foundation. At the end of June 2021 the Foundation was involved in another philanthropic activity where 30 beneficiaries were blessed with food hampers. Most of the Foundation's beneficiaries they come through referrals regardless of religious or political affiliation. The Foundation strives to increase the number of its beneficiaries at every next philanthropic activity. Due to lack of resources, the Foundation doesn't reach out as it is supposed to. The Foundation has got the right to verify the eligibility requirements for potential beneficiaries.
The Foundation is publicly funded through the Founder’s savings, friends and well wishers. Currently there are no sponsors or partnerships. The Foundation welcomes any form of partnership or sponsorship to advance its mission and vision.
