Our team together with Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education are getting ready for yet another busy week ahead of us to set up 4 outdoor play grounds in four rural primary schools… This makes it 31 schools in just 9 months and 61 schools in 3 years… We are more than inspired by our achievement so far!
Over the past month our team has been camping around 27 primary schools in Hwange District training and setting up outdoor play grounds for children in Early Childhood Development grade. We feel inspired by the zeal in most communities as parents came out in numbers to work with us in setting up these important play facilities. We can only imagine a brighter future for the many children we are helping out judging from the commitment of the parents.
Construction works taking place at Chewumba and Kanywambizi pry schools. We have reached this far through collaborations with Hwange Rural District Council and School Development Committees who have contributed bricks, river-sand and labor respectively.
Our role is coordination and providing such materials which local authorities could not provide i.e cement, brick-force, window/door frames, roof and other such materials which are not locally available.
Last week we had the privilege to host over 30 Hwange District HIV/AIDS service organizations, key players and stakeholders at our Sizinda Centre for a full day HIV/AIDS low rope educational session in commemoration of World AIDS Day. Great strides towards closing the tap of new HIV infections and reaching the 90-90-90 goals.
Our friends and colleagues took it upon themselves over the past week to help set up outdoor play equipment at our Sizinda Community Early Childhood Development Education Centre. Furthermore, the team distributed clothing to all the 31 children learning in this school and also offered their teaching skills. Be the change!
