Newsletter 007 – May 2017

We are delighted to report that the charity received a donation of 5 lap-tops from Tools with a Mission (TWAM), this is good news for our children who are studying IT but with no computers. All their learning is text book based. The lap-tops will also be used at our Saturday Club.

Saturday Club

The Saturday Club is doing well and our volunteer teacher, Tapiwa, is also our 6th Form student whom we started supporting this January. 2 of our children will be sitting their Grade 7 exams at the end of this year, the Sat club is a great help to support them prepare for their exams. Grade 7 is equivalent to Year 6.  We are delighted that Tapiwa is learning leadership skills as well as developing others.

Sponsorship

Sponsoring children is the most effective model as it offers more security to a child’s classroom attendance. In most cases fees are paid in advance thereby removing any worries families might have about continued support.

New children

We recently took on board 3 children from the same family (Tapiwa mentioned above and his 2 sisters, Tsitsi (year 3) and Tinevimbo (year 8). This family lives with their mother in a small roomed cabin, their father sadly passed away and mother is unemployed. The family is facing a lot of challenges and any in-kind help such as blankets, clothing is most welcome.

Referrals

We get a lot of referrals, sadly, we are declining as we are not in a financial position to take on more children.
