GO TEAM 2019 – Cross Over Zimbabwe

Saturday, 13 July 2019 - Monday, 22 July 2019

For the past 7 years Crossroads have been developing a relationship with Cross Over, a school, located in Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe, that serves children that have dropped out of the regular school system.

Cross Over aims to help vulnerable children in Zimbabwe to live and work towards a hopeful future by providing a holistic, quality education within a strong nurturing environment.

This year we are sending GO TEAM to Zimbabwe to support the Cross Over projects. If this something you would like to be a part of, then read further to discover the different ways you can get involved:


One of the most important aspects of an outreach is prayer. In this specific instance prayer support for those who are going (while they are preparing and while they are away) by those who are not able to go themselves.


If you have specific skills pertaining to one of the teams going to Cross Over, but you are unable to go yourself and would like to contribute, please let us know.


If you are unable to go yourself, but would like to enable someone else to go by contributing towards or covering their costs.


Donations would assist the teams to bless Cross Over with much needed physical resources ie. basic art and crafts materials, stationery, musical instruments, sport equipment and materials needed for renovations and gardening.
