In 2002 Harvesters in Sport Ministry (HiS) was established and registered in Harare in 2004, Zimbabwe by Hatiatyi Prosper Kwenda.  The focus of HiS is to become a vehicle for sports outreach and charity work…

2002

Hatiatyi Prosper Kwenda founded Harvesters in Sport Ministry after travelling to various countries with organizations such Athletes in Action, Missionary Athletes International and Ambassadors in Sport using sport as a vehicle for ministry.

2005

Harvesters in Sport Ministry began running its own camps independent of organizations like Scripture Union with whom we had previously collaborated.

2006

This year saw us facilitating over twenty camps with over fifteen different schools and organizations, which was a successful record in our first full year without assistance.

We began catering for corporate organizations in terms of team building courses. We even facilitated for banks and financial investment houses (Standard Chartered and Tetrad).

Harvesters in Sport website launched.


We had three international missionaries visiting Zimbabwe through our organization: Two young women from Canada (Karen Berry & Sandeep Parmar), Todd Elkins from California and Allan Nixon from Ireland. The two women did missionary work and visited the children at SOS Children’s Village in Waterfalls, Harare. Todd Elkins came on a personal mission and we hosted him. He donated equipment to our organization and participated in some of our camps and sporting events (church league soccer, children’s soccer coaching). Allan Nixon (Athletes in Action Director, Ireland) is a licensed UEFA professional and he conducted coaching clinics while he was with us.

2007

Chris Musonda, the Athletes in Action director (Zambia) visited Zimbabwe through our organization to help conduct football clinics.

We also hosted the Ambassadors in Sport Director of Football (Bolton) John Squires. He is a UEFA licensed coach and he came to instruct an Advanced Level refresher course.

2008

Prosper Kwenda has been selected to help start the Ubabalo eAfrica 2010 program here in Harare along with members of Sports Coalition Zimbabwe, Viva Network and Oasis Zimbabwe. As a result, HiS is hosting John Yip, who is the Africa Coordinator for the Ubabalo initiative, when he comes to hold a workshop to train coaches and trainers this August. Ubabalo is a program that equips soccer coaches to be whole life coaches.

HiS facilitates the hosting and of the training of trainers and 15 participants are present. The Training is a success. The Ubabalo leadership is handed over to the Sports Coalition of Zimbabwe.

2009

HiS office moved to Milton Park.

Soccer School of Excellence was launched at Harare International School on Saturdays.
